NEW YORK, NY - The 13th annual bicycle ride for the hungry. Benefits Saint Mary's Soup Kitchen, City Harvest, Nazareth Housing and The New York Bicycle Messenger Foundation.
The New York Bike Messenger Foundation presents Cranksgiving, a charitable alley cat bicycle ride, now in its 13th year. In Cranksgiving, riders navigate around Manhattan to purchase Thanksgiving dinner ingredients at designated grocery stores. At the finish line, they arrive with a bag full of food to be donated to various charities.
Cranksgiving is a race, but everyone is welcome to ride and participate in the fun! Bring a bag, some money, and a good lock!

Two hundred racers at the 2010 Cranksgiving raised over $2,000 in food for Saint Mary's soup kitchen, over 400 jars of baby food for Nazareth Housing & Yorkville Common Pantry and $1,895 for City Harvest and the New York Bike Messenger Foundation. It was the largest Cranksgiving ever.
The New York Bike Messenger Foundation expects upwards of 400 riders this year, and hopes to surpass last year’s record donations!
