Hey there Bike Lovers.
I don’t post much on here*, and don’t even really do that great a job of lurking, but dammit I love bikes, and I love Thanksgiving.
Anyway, here’s the deal: my friend Brean (CHI messenger) has been throwing a race in Chicago called Cranksgiving for a few years now, inspired by the OG Cranksgiving in NYC, where he used to mess. I noticed that MPLS didn’t have such a thing, and I figured there’d be a place for it.
If you’re not familiar with CG, it’s a food drive/alleycat, where are all the checkpoints are grocery stores, and your manifest is a bunch of food and a stack of receipts. All proceeds go to a local charity (SECOND HARVEST, in this case).
Prizes go to the fastest AND the most generous. Tear-ass around the city with a bag full of food and get in first? Awesome, here’s a prize! Chug around slow-and-steady with a heaping pile of goods for some families that would really appreciate it? Haul/buy enough and there’s a prize for that, too!
