What is Cranksgiving?
It is best described as a casual bike ride, a scavenger hunt and a food drive all rolled up into one fun event benefitting Indianapolis based Second Helpings! In 2012, ActiveIndy Tours hosted the first Cranksgiving here in Indianapolis. With over 100 riders participating, it was the 3rd largest Cranksgiving in the United States last year. (The St. Louis Cranksgiving 2014 was just attended by over 700 riders).
Riders will be given the locations of places in and around downtown Indianapolis where they will ride and gather food items that are carried back to the start/finish location and donated to a food pantry. Locations are not announced until you arrive on-site and there is no predetermined route – or even an order in which you must visit the stops.
Based on your "street-smarts" of Indianapolis, you’ll be riding about 10-15 miles – but that is up to you! Your mission is to figure out the best route to these locations, purchase the food item specified and bring your bounty of nourishment to the start/finish area safely.
