Richmond Cranksgiving is a choose your own adventure poker race or ride to different grocery stores in the city. Here's how it works:

✭There are two route options, a short route around the fan if you like a social ride (4.5 miles) and a longer ride around the city if you'd rather bike farther (12 miles)
✭You'll get a manifest with different stores to buy food, as well as what to get
✭At each stop, you'll buy the food and hand it off to a person out front, who will give you a poker card and check your manifest
✭You'll have to finish at Lombardy Kroger by 5PM, where your time will be logged and your manifest collected
