Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, it has been held annually in New York City since 1999. Since '99 it's spread around America, with hundreds of cities hosting their own races. Port Townsend's inaugural Cranksgiving will be on November 22, 2015.There's no registration fee for this "race", just bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and about $10-$20 to buy food. A manifest and map will be given to you at the start of the race. All of the food collected at grocery stores will benefit The Boiler Room's Thanksgiving Day Meals. Last year The Boiler Room served 110 meals on Thanksgiving, and 82 the year before. The Boiler Room is also one of the only businesses open downtown on Thanksgiving, providing a warm, dry space for people in need.After the race, there will be cookies and chai at The Boiler Room for all participants, on the house, and various prizes will be awarded. We're on the official map! See it here: http:// www.cranksgiving.org/ index.html
