Cranksgiving ATX 2018

Join us for the 5th annual Cranksgiving ATX bicycle fun ride food drive! Bring your bike, bag, lock, as many friends as you can, and ride out for a good cause! You'll need about $15 to buy food donations for the Central Texas Food Bank.

Navigate the streets of the city and the aisles of grocery stores as you search for specific canned goods. Expect a few photo challenges along the way just for fun. All food donations will be collected at the after party at The Buzzmill.

Prizes sponsored by The Peddler will be awarded for top male/female finishers…example categories for prizes:

First to arrive at the Buzzmill with qualifying manifest
Heaviest load of donated foods (must be carried by one person on a bike)
Last to arrive at the Buzzmill with qualifying manifest (by cut off time)
Stay tuned for additional prize categories and possibly a raffle

Cranksgiving helps feed the hungry through the Capitol Area Food Bank of Texas which “employ(s) the most efficient, streamlined model possible to fight hunger in Central Texas.”

The Central Texas Food Bank


Each participant will receive a “manifest” at The Peddler. The manifest will list the top 10 requested items from the food bank as well as a list of grocery store locations. There will also be a few photo challenges. One of the food items must be purchased from each store and the receipt and food item must be brought on bicycle to the end party at The Buzz Mill. Upon arrival at The Buzz Mill, each participant will submit the foods and receipts in exchange for a signature on the manifest. One signed manifest can be traded for a cup at the Buzz Mill. Cups will be filled with a local brew – (brewery tbd). Others that are unable to participate in the bike portion of the food drive can make a strict minimum $10 donation to obtain a cup. 100% of all food and cash donations will go directly to the Central Texas Food Bank. No purchase necessary to ride in the event and there is no entry fee at the Buzz Mill.

It is definitely more fun to participate with a bike but anyone that can't attend the bike scavenger hunt part of the ride can still be a part of the fun by dropping a few electronic coins here:

Cranksgiving ATX 2017 raised over 2270 meals for the food bank.
Cranksgiving ATX 2016 raised over 1574 meals for the food bank.
Cranksgiving ATX 2015 raised over 550 meals for the food bank.
Cranksgiving ATX 2014 raised over 250 meals for the food bank.
