Join Bike Cleveland and Pedal for Prizes for Cleveland’s first annual Cranksgiving — a bike ride, scavenger hunt and food drive to help provide meals to Cleveland families that may not have one during the Thanksgiving season — on Saturday, November 17.
You’ll meet at Phoenix Coffee, 1700 East 9Th Street and receive a manifest with a list of participating grocery stores scattered throughout Cleveland and a food item to purchase at each store. Ride your bike on your own or with friends to grocery stores in different quadrants, purchasing the items specified on your manifest. It’s up to you to determine which stores you ride to and in what order, as well as the routes you take. Your ride will likely be around 15 miles.
All food items collected during the event will be donated to hunger centers at University Settlement in Slavic Village and St. Augustine Church in Tremont to feed needy families during the holiday season.
Registration begins at 11am, with participants receiving free coffee courtesy of Phoenix Coffee. Manifests will be distributed around 11:45am so you’ll have a few minutes to plan your ride before being sent on your way at noon. The event is free and open to all, but please bring about $15 to purchase food items as well as a messenger bag, pannier, or backpack in which you can haul your groceries. Return to Phoenix Coffee by 3pm with receipts from four different stores and four food items. Participants are strongly encouraged to practice bicycle safety: bring a lock, wear a helmet, and follow local traffic laws.
