Join us for our 3rd Annual Cranksgiving family bike ride through Hilltop benefiting the St. Leo Food Connection!
We'll roll-out on Saturday November 18, 2017, at 10:30 a.m. from 2nd Cycle Community Cycle Center in Tacoma (1205 MLK Jr Way). We'll pedal a mile or so 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 to the Food Connection to deliver our items and take a quick tour. Cash donations will also be accepted and are used to purchase fresh produce. 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.)
As always, we will be riding in the street and following the Rules of the Road. For this ride, younger riders with push bikes or training wheels can take a shortcut and ride directly to Safeway along the sidewalk. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Please plan accordingly and dress for the weather! Helmets for all riders are required.
When: 10:30 am, Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017
Who: Kids and their Families, Neighbors, Friends
Why: Food Drive for the Food Connection (and Learn to Shop by Bike!)
