heathy charity – cranksgiving ’08

back in 1999, in new york city, a bunch of bike messengers got together and decided to organize an alleycat race – but this one stopped at groceries along the way, where the cyclists bought non-perisable goods to donate to charity.

this idea spread to los angeles, chicago, des moines, madison, and even st. louis – this year is the third year for our fair city.

starting at the st. louis bike works at noon on november 23, stl-bike-works1

you can choose a long (25 mile) or a short (5 mile) route, you will be given a shopping list of needed items (you are asked to spend about $20), and a map of the route.

if you chose the short route, you will be dropping in on us – so stop when you see this:


this is a great way to start the giving season. don’t forget a comfortable and strong bag to carry your items, some warm gloves, and a sense of humor (cause you can never leave the house without that).

you can find a little more info here.
