Boise, IDAHO – Cranksgiving, the annual Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt on bicycles, returns for an eighth year on Saturday, November 18, 2023. Sponsored by Valley Regional Transit and ACHD Commuteride, the event features costumed teams of cyclists gathering items to fill Thanksgiving food boxes, which are given to St. Vincent De Paul for distribution to Treasure Valley families in need.
The event will start at 11:00 a.m. at Clairvoyant Brewing (2800 W Idaho Street, Boise, ID 83702). The event will also finish at the brewery with entertainment and an awards ceremony. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
Rather than paying an entry fee, riders should bring money to purchase food items. Some items are provided for free from generous supporting businesses. Cranksgiving teams are given a manifest of food items to collect and fun tasks to complete along the way. Trophies and prizes are awarded to the three fastest teams, the team with the biggest turkey, and the best team costumes.
Cranksgiving organizers will also accept food box donations at Clairvoyant from those who don’t want to ride bikes but would still like to contribute. Participants can register to drop off food items at the event’s registration page. A shopping list will be emailed the day before the event.
