Please join Columbus Gives Back for Cranksgiving 2018, a food drive on two wheels! Started in 1999 in New York City, Cranksgiving is a celebration of cycling and charity that now has events around the globe. How does it work? Simple. Cranksgiving is a free event for anyone with a bike and a desire to do good. Show up on two wheels, and we’ll hand you a list of needed items and a map of stores. Roll out, visit as many stores as you like, buy as little or as much as you want, haul it all by bike, and then enjoy some post-ride socializing at our ride start/finish, Lineage Brewing. All items purchased by participants will be donated to the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center. The more stores you visit and the more you haul, the better chance you’ll have of winning an award or raffle prize!
Where: Lineage Brewing, 2971 N. High St., Columbus, OH 43202
When: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM, Saturday November 10
Event Leaders: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
What to Wear: please dress warmly and appropriately for biking. Helmets are strongly recommended
What to Bring: All participants will need access to a bike – LimeBike is available in Clintonville if you would like to rent a bike for the event. Bike locks and headlights are also recommended. You will also want to have some method of carrying purchased items, such as a backpack, rack and panniers, basket, or even a trailer.
Parking: There is no parking for Cranksgiving participants at Lineage. Please park at the Lower Olentangy Urban Arboretum lot on E Weber between Calumet and Indianola, across from the Indianola Informal School. From there it is a short ride to Lineage.
#SocialTwist: Please join us afterwards for food and drinks and fun with other cool volunteers like yourselves!
