Cranksgiving began in New York City in 1999 as a food raising event for a local food pantry by the NYC bicycle messengers. It was originally a bicycle messenger race that also raised food for the needy. After the success and excitement of this first event the concept began to migrate from city to city and is today a nation wide event in which cycling enthusiasts from different cities host what is today a family fun ride on the first Sunday in November. The ride takes a route past a number of different grocery and food outlet stores who often support the event by assisting riders as they stop to purchase food. Riders are asked to purchase a minimum of $20 worth of non perishable food during their ride that is then donated at the rides conclusion.
St. Louis’ Annual Cranksgiving has been the biggest and best supported for the past two years raising in excess of 7,000 food items annually with over 800 local riders of all ages participating. Click here to read a St. Louis Post Dispatch article about the Cranksgiving 2011 Ride.
