Cranksgiving this Saturday!!!

Only a few days away from the second Cranksgiving! Here is a little FAQ to know what to expect.

10:00am Registration starts at Woodfords Church with the race starting shortly after.
 Shopping lists will be handed out when you register and a map will be available to plan your attack!

What is it going to cost?
Whatever you spend on the items on the list. There are 8 items this year.  Remember, all the money you spend on items goes to Project FEED.

What do I bring?
A bike obviously, a bag to carry the items in, money to buy the items, and a lock and helmet if you choose.

How do I collect all this?
You will be given a list of 8 items that you must get at 8 specific stores. You can choose how you get there by bike, but you must buy the specific item at the specific store and keep the reciept.

Allspeed Cyclery is donating the prizes, Big Thanks!!  Prizes will be awarded for First Place, Heaviest Donation and another prize that will be raffled off to all participants.  You benefit more from being generous than fast!!  There will be cheesy homemade medals for the top three finishers too.

What if it's cold?
The forecast looks good, high of 50 degrees on Saturday, so dress appropriately, but should be a nice November day.  Perhaps a little chilly at the start, but you will heat up racing around town.

How far is it?
The course depends on the route you choose.
. If it's too far for you consider modifying the route and still donating. There are plenty of stores right down the sreet.

The finish is at
Woodfords Church where we will collect all the can goods, hang out and give away prizes. We plan on being there until 1:00pm.

Thanks in advance to everyone that is planning on attending! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions!
