Our ninth annual Savannah Cranksgiving Ride is Saturday, Nov. 20 starting at 1 p.m. Cranksgiving is half bike ride, half food drive and a 100 percent fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon helping others.

Bike Walk Savannah (and you!) will be helping feed hungry people at Emmaus House. Founded in 1982 by a group of downtown churches, Emmaus House provides food and day services to the homeless and needy of Savannah. Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, fifty weeks each year.

Registration for the ride starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 20 at BWS HQ (Corner of Henry and Lincoln streets). At registration, participants will receive a shopping list of items needed by Emmaus House, as well as a scavenger hunt. The challenge begins at 1:30 p.m. when riders roll out to shop by bike. Participants should pick up items from the shopping list without going over $15-20 price limit. This is not a race! Riders may compete by themselves or on teams (up to 6 members).

Prize packages will be awarded in the following categories:

Most Items Carried by a Single Person
Most Stores Visited (receipts needed from each store)
Best Team Effort
Most Innovative Cargo Rig

Participants who complete the Scavenger Hunt will be entered to win a BWS prize pack.

All participants must return to 1301 A Lincoln St. by 4 p.m. to tally up their purchases.

What should you bring? First of all, you’ll need your bike and $15-20. We also suggest a helmet. If you’re planning on carrying groceries, you should bring a backpack or other cargo solution for your bike. Masks/facial coverings may be required in all stores and at BWS HQ, and are recommended when on your ride.

Advanced registration is recommended. If you are unable to participate in person, please email to receive the supply list or visit our website to make a financial contribution.

Cranksgiving is a national event that occurs in over 100 cities across the United States and Canada. Visit for more locations.
