Last year's 1st annual Miami Cranksgiving food drive alleycat race was a huge success. This year we hope to make it greater thus helping to collect more non-perishable goods for those in need this holiday season.
Mark your calendars:
Cranksgiving Food Drive Alleycat Race 2010
Saturday, November 20th
2:00pm signup, 2:30pm start
Government Center (by the Orange Peels)
150 NW First Street
Miami, FL. 33130
Participants will receive a map at the start of the race with grocery stores locations & a shopping list (manifest). Riders will go to 5 grocery store checkpoints and buy non-perishable food items from the checklist. There is no registration fee, the $10 goes to purchase the items. All collected goods will be donated to Camillus House at the end of the race. This is for a great cause and at the same time shines a positive spotlight on the local cycling community. Expect to spend about $2 at each grocery store. You will be required to keep all receipts.
The race is tentatively 17 miles, speed is an obvious advantage but knowing your way around the city & the aisles of a supermarket can also help you significantly.
For those who prefer not to ride really fast it's okay. There will also be prizes for most charitable. If speed is not your thing you can ride the event as a scavenger hunt instead of a race. Last year 100 local cyclists participated making it the largest alleycat in South Florida, everyone had a great time and the Camillus House was very thankful about the event. Hope to see you there this year, all bikes welcomed.
