Cranksgiving with Boise GreenBike

Boise GreenBike is proud to again sponsor Cranksgiving, a Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt on bicycles for a cause. On Saturday, November 17th teams of three to four participants will use their own and Boise GreenBikes to gather a list of items to fill Thanksgiving food boxes. The food items are donated to St. Vincent de Paul for distribution to families in need throughout the Treasure Valley. Last year the event provided Thanksgiving food boxes for 36 families. This year we want to do even better!

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 from Create Common Good 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.
