Bike-Based Food Drive Coming to San Jose


Cranksgiving – the bike-based food drive – came to San Jose for the first time in 2016, where 65 riders gathered more than 1,300 pounds of food to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.

This year it’s back on Nov. 18. Registration is free and begins at noon at Saint James Park, San Jose – the ride begins at 1 p.m. After registering in either the ‘Speed’ or ‘Heavy Hauler’ category, riders are given a list of local grocery stores. When the ride starts cyclists ride off to buy specific items needed by Second Harvest Food Bank and meet at the end location (SOFA Market) for a weigh-in, celebration, and great prizes!

Just bring a bike, a bag, a lock, a helmet, about $20 to spend on the food you’ll buy to donate.
