Join St. Louis BWorks for this year’s Cranksgiving — Starting at 2nd Shift Brewing!

For the past 17 years, St. Louis BWorks has hosted the annual Cranksgiving canned food drive by bicycle. During that time, with support from the community (that’s you!), we have collected more than 100,000 nonperishable food items that are then donated to a local food bank. And through most of those years, the St. Louis Cranksgiving has been the largest in the country.

Here’s the deets:

You can register and make your donation here.

The BWorks team will have short release forms to fill out at the brewery starting at 9:30 a.m. for a 10 a.m. ride start OR you can print and fill out the form here and bring it with you to the event.

When and where

The Sunday, November 12, ride will begin and end at 2nd Shift Brewing! Short (5 miles) Medium (15 miles) and long (20 miles) route options will be emailed to registrants the night prior. Weather allowing routes will be marked. Ride starts at 10 a.m.


BWorks will have a marked route on the streets. BWorks will email registrants the routes the night prior.

Short (5 miles), medium (15 miles) and long (20 miles) route options

We strive to use low-traffic streets. All streets are open to the public and we ask you to share the road!

Other stuff

One beer included with registration donation for 21-and-older riders! (Thank you, 2nd Shift!)

Parking: Plenty of street parking is along Sublette Ave. Please do not park in the parking lot, and better yet, try riding to the event!

T-shirts: We are waiting to hear from the printer about if they will join us this year.

To keep in mind

There will be minimum grocery-store stops; your $20 (or more!) donation will go further by allowing Operation Food Search (receives $15 per rider) to buy more strategically and in bulk with the collected funds and with BWorks (receives $5 per rider) purchasing healthy fresh snacks for our youth classes.
