Cranksgiving // Nov. 19

Part bike race, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, Cranksgiving benefits the GCC Thanksgiving Basket Drive. Riders will receive a manifest with scavenger hunt details that include what you need to pick up and where to get each item.

On the day of the event bring a bike, a bag, a lock and about $25 to $50 to buy food. Oh—and nobody is gonna be mad if you get more than what’s listed on your manifest. This is YOUR grocery-getting adventure. So stuff those panniers with stuffing, strap that turkey into your bike trailer, and grab all the green beans you can carry.

When: Sunday, Nov. 19, 11am

Where: Start as a group at the Wisconsin State Capitol (optional)

Full details here.

Drop off donations along the bike path at the Goodman Center.
