Calling all bike enthusiasts! This Saturday, Cranksgiving returns to Solar One, and if you’ve never participated in this fun event that’s also a successful food drive, this year would certainly be an excellent time to start. The weather on Saturday looks good, and we expect at least 300 bikers- some in season-appropriate costumes like the gentleman in the picture above- to arrive at Solar One between 12:30 and 2pm to register, pick up the manifests with the items and stores they need to hit and plan their roots. Each rider should bring a lock, helmet and bag, and about $20 for groceries (although if you buy more stuff, you could win the “Most Generous” prize. Just sayin’.) At 2pm, they’ll be off! And of course there will be after parties…Please check the Cranksgiving website or Facebook page for the most complete, up-to-date information.
