How to Participate in Cranksgiving, a Food Drive on Two Wheels – Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, it has been held annually in New York City since 1999, and this will be the second event in Boulder, Co!


Riding/racing in a chaotic shopping spree by purchasing one specific food item at specific supermarket check-points all over Boulder. There is no entry fee, but you will need to buy the food, which will then be donated to a charity after the ride (Boulder Area Food Banks).

Specific items/stores/directions will be provided the day of event…it’s a surprise! Total shopping route will be about ~1-1.5hrs which will all take place within the Boulder City proper limits.

Participants will meet/start/end in the parking lot of Wild Woods Brewery (5460 Conestoga Ct Boulder, CO 80301). Stay after the event for socializing over a soda/beer and some food.

Bring a bike, bike lock, ~$20 to purchase your groceries and a big smile!

Prizes for: Fastest shopper, surplus shop, most unique item, and more!
