“Due to some challenging circumstances, we won’t be running a Cranksgiving in Hamilton for 2017.

We love Cranksgiving – the fun of riding in the cooler fall temperatures, watching the first person zip through the finish line, hearing the stories about line-ups at the grocery stores or the routes participants took to shave a few minutes or kilometers off their ride.

We also love the generosity of all of our participants. In past years, we’ve gathered over 1000 lbs of food ($2000 worth of food) for the Welcome Inn Community Centre in one day!

Welcome Inn has come to depend on this generosity and so we’d like to ask all our previous participants to consider giving their $25 (or more) in money or food directly to the Welcome Inn either online (https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/15510) or in person (40 Wood St E).

We love organizing this event and want to ensure Cranksgiving 2018 is better than ever before so if you are interested in being a part of the 2018 Cranksgiving organizing team, please send an email to heidi@pedalpoweredfamily.com. We’ll be meeting once per month starting January 2018 to start securing sponsorships and partnerships with local bike shops and grocery stores. We’ll start meeting bi-weekly in July to ensure publicity, registrations, and manifests can be created with enough lead time before the day of the event: Saturday October 6, 2018! Thank you for your understanding and we’ll see you next year!” Heidi & Reuben
