Raleigh Cranksgiving 2014

Cranksgiving is a mobile food drive on two wheels (or three if you have a tricycle!) where riders collect food and donations from local stores by bike. Cranksgiving is a national concept that started in New York in 1999 and has spread to countless other cities since.

It is a fun way to bike your city, build community and help provide for the needy during the holiday. All ages and skill levels are welcome: racers, leisure riders, kids and families. Hoping to see many new and familiar faces!

Here are the details for the Raleigh Cranksgiving 2014:
