We have found Cranksgiving to be a great project.

Cranksgiving equals
Teaching the kids about giving back to the community.
Volunteers get a chance to relax and have fun
Chance to show the shop off to people who otherwise would not stop by.
Lots of media PR
Another Interaction with other Non-profits

So we have multiple routes for different abilities and separate out the race portion to a completely different day, this allows everyone to come hang out, not just the urban hipsters.


This year we are going to have 300 riders = about 4800 food items
