Washington Park: Henry Johnson Memorial (Henry Johnson & State)
Cranksgiving! Finally, a charity race where ALL the $$ goes to direct action. Homeless Action Committee are the ONLY organization I see out on the streets doing work night after night, so it’s only right that they get our support. You WILL NEED a lock and a bag for this one.
It consists of getting a list of grocery items, going to the specific grocery store on the list, buying items, repeating those steps until you’re done, then donating all the food to HAC when it’s over. Everyone wins, even if you come in last place!
Ride any uni or bike or trike you like; as long as it’s got wheels and pedals and is you-powered, it’s all good. You will not be turned away for excess spandex or your lack of white belts.
Entry fee gets you a neato handmade spoke card and a shot at being the baddest ass in the Capital Region.
Pre-registration via email to firstname.lastname@example.org is encouraged for planning purposes.
Here’s some history and background on the Cranksgiving tradition.
I hope to see all of you there!
