Cranksgiving Miami is back! Last year's 1st annual bicycle food drive alleycat race was a huge success and we're hoping to make it greater this year by collecting more non-perishable goods for those in need.

Government Center (by the Orange Peels)
150 NW First Street
Downtown Miami


Participants will receive a map at the start of the race with grocery stores locations along with a shopping list (manifest). Riders will go to 5 grocery store checkpoints and buy the non-perishable food items off the checklist. There is no registration fee, the $10 goes to purchase the items. All collected goods will be donated to Camillus House at the end of the race. Spoke cards will be issued once the items have been donated. This is for a great cause and at the same time shines a positive spotlight on the local cycling community. Expect to spend about $2 at each grocery store. You will be required to keep all receipts.

The race is tentatively 17 miles, speed is an obvious advantage but knowing your way around the city & the aisles of a supermarket can also help you significantly.

For those who prefer not to ride really fast it's okay. There will also be prizes for most charitable. If speed is not your thing you can ride the event in a scavenger hunt fashion instead of a race. Last year 100 local cyclists participated making it the largest alleycat in South Florida, everyone had a great time and the Camillus House was very thankful for our efforts. Hope to see you there on November 20th, all bikes welcomed.
