Event Dates and Times
Boise GreenBike is once again proud to sponsor Cranksgiving, a Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt on bicycles that helps feed families in need. On Saturday, November 17th, teams of three to four participants will use bicycles to gather a list of items to fill Thanksgiving food boxes. Boise GreenBike gives the food boxes to St. Vincent de Paul for distribution to families in need throughout the Treasure Valley. Last year, 36 food boxes were distributed.

To make Cranksgiving accessible to more people personal bikes will be allowed in the event, with the stipulation that EACH TEAM MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST ONE BOISE GREENBIKE. For every GreenBike in use, the participant will get a $20 credit in the GreenBike network.
Instead of an entry fee, each rider should bring $10-$15 to purchase the Thanksgiving food items. Teams of riders will get a manifest listing the food items to be collected as well as completing fun tasks along the way. Team members should bring a backpack to help carry food items. Prizes are awarded to teams that are the fastest, slowest, have the best costumes and the biggest turkey.

The Cranksgiving scavenger hunt will be followed by an after-party at Clairvoyant Brewing, 2800 W. Idaho Street in Boise. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and there will be a prize raffle to benefit the Idaho Advocates for Community Transportation. ACHD Commuteride will park a van at the brewery – the Can Van – to encourage donations of non-perishable food items for the Idaho Food Bank.
