Join Kidical Mass Tacoma for our 5th Annual Cranksgiving family bike ride benefiting the St. Leo Food Connection food bank!
Meet-up at the bike corral in front of Alma Mater around 12:45 pm. We'll roll-out at 1 pm, pedaling a 2.3 mile route to the Hilltop Safeway for a chance to try our hand at family shopping by bicycle. Riders will be asked to purchase a few items that will be donated to St. Leo Food Connection. Be sure to bring along some way to haul your food items on your bike - backpack, basket, trailer, etc.
After we shop, we'll pedal directly to the Food Connection to donate our items. Cash donations will also be collected at this time and are used to purchase fresh produce for the food bank. We'll finish around the corner at Alma Mater to celebrate our biking and shopping skills.
FAQ: Do I have to shop at Hilltop Safeway? Nope. You are welcome to shop before the ride and bring items along if that's a better way to stretch your dollars (Costco and Cash'n'Carry have some good deals if you want to buy in bulk.)
**Special Note: This route is not very long, but it is uphill getting to the store and downhill getting back to Alma Mater. We've picked a more gradual route up and down the hill, but no push bikes or training wheels please.
Optional: RSVP on Facebook so we know you're planning to attend. Cheers!
