Get ready for a new event! Cranksgiving is free bike race that has participants bicycling all over the city to different stores, gathering hundreds items that are donated to nonprofits in the area. For example, there might be 15 items on a list, and people have to go to at least 10 different stores on their bikes to purchase those items. Things on the list can include items (Such as canned food, diapers, formula, art supplies) most in need for Family Promise, the Boys and Girls Club, and Food Pantry . It’s a great way to support the local stores in Fort Atkinson and also a fun way to get people out on bikes having a good time.
