Free Friday: Cycling for charity at the Georgetown waterfront
Ready to get crazy this Cranksgiving? Wondering what the Hell Cranksgiving is? Allow Vox to educate you on this fine holiday that is a close second to Festivus and the quest for the slutty pumpkin.
This Saturday, head to the Georgetown Waterfront for D.C.’s second annual Cranksgiving, which is part bike ride, part autism awareness ride, part food drive, and part scavenger hunt.
Teams of at least two cyclists are given a destination map and list of food items to buy that will be donated to Miriam’s Kitchen, a non-profit organization serving homeless individuals in D.C. The team with the most scavenger points from purchasing the designated items wins.
Registration is free online, but $15-$30 should be brought to purchase the food items. Donations are also welcome for Miriam’s Kitchen, and Cranksgiving D.C. is also in partnership with Autism Speaks.
Cyclists can also register the day of at 12 p.m. The ride promptly begins at 12:30 p.m. from under Key Bridge (the Gerogetown Water Front, 3400 K St NW). The ride finishes at Tonic Restaurant, 2036 G Street NW. There will be an after party and award ceremony from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
