Cranksgiving 2017

On Saturday, November 18, GObike Buffalo Community Workshop will be holding another Cranksgiving. If you have never participated in this annual cycling and food gathering event, then you don’t know what you’re missing. Every year, cyclists take to the streets of Buffalo, to collect food items for the needy. They do it for fun, and they do it to be charitable to their neighbors in need.

This year’s Cranksgiving will benefit Buffalo Food Not Bombs. To take part in this charitable scavenger hunt, all you need to participate is a bike, a bag, a lock, a helmet and about $10-15 to buy food. Each of the cyclists will be handed a small grocery list of items that they will need to collect during the event. All of the spoils will then be donated to Buffalo Food Not Bombs – riders will bring their booty to the GObike workshop. There could not be a better time to join together for this event, as the world seems as if it is going “bomb crazy” these days.
