Cranksgiving Ride – Saturday November 10th
This is a special one! With inspiration from Cranksgiving rides that happen around the country, we’ve organized Poughkeepsie’s second annual Cranksgiving bike ride. Like all 8-ward rides, it’s a chance together with friends and neighbors in the City of Poughkeepsie. This time, there will be a handful of stops where group members can, if they desire, purchase nutritious food. The ride culminates in delivery of the collected food to Dutchess Outreach, where it will supply the Nourish Your Neighbor backpack program, benefiting Poughkeepsie City School District students on weekends, when they do not have access to free school meals. There will also be a post-ride wind-down at a local establishment – location TBD. Make sure to bring a backpack if you don’t have storage on your bike! Natalie Quinn, Sarah Salem and Evelina Knodel are taking lead on this, but if anyone wishes to be more involved or help be a group leader, please get in touch with them. It’s possible this ride will bring a lot of people out, necessitating separate groups. The more the merrier, but we could use some help with group leaders.
