An excellent and fun time was had by all at our 6th annual Cranksgiving Bicycle Food Drive & Alleycat Race yesterday afternoon, despite grey skies and strong winds we still managed to have 186 registered cyclists and collected 900 lbs in non-perishable items (an estimated $2,250 value) for the Camillus House. Thank you to Gary Mendenhall and the Origin8 crew (James, Ross, and Michael) for all their help, to Sidebar Miami for hosting us, and most importantly to everyone who participated in this worthy cause. Also special thanks to all of our sponsors: Ass Savers, Bike Nerds, Champ Bags, Chrome, Cinelli, KIND, Knog, Kryptonite, Mack Cycle & Fitness, Magic City Bicycle Collective, New Belgium, MonkeyLectric, Omnium Bicycles, Road Holland, Sun Cycling, and Vita Coco. We hope to see you everyone again next year!
This year NBC's TODAY Show participated in Cranksgiving, anchors Natalie Morales and Kerry Sanders along with NBC tv correspondents Jawan Strader, Julia Bagg, and Jamie Guirola rode their bikes to help raise food for the Camillus House.
Cranksgiving was featured on NBC's TODAY Show Monday morning!
Congrats to John Voss on being the "Most Charitable" rider and winning a Road Holland jersey.
