Ride your bike.

Feed the hungry.

Feel good.

In essense, that’s what Cranksgiving is all about. It costs absolutely nothing to register and you get so much in return. Like the ride itself. You’ll love the scenic spin through the most beautiful Amish farmland in Lancaster County. You’ll also love the cammradery and the party we’ll have here at the shop when you return. All we ask is that you purchase non-perishables at each grocery stop along the route (choose from a 3-stop 34-mile route and a 1-stop 15-mile route). There will be a donation area at each grocery store for you to place your purchases (no worries about carrying them with you on your ride. The goal here is to feed as many people as possible, not to weigh you down!). When you’re finished, we’ll feed you for free here at the shop! We’ll also have raffle prizes and we’ll reward the rider who donates the most food (so save those receipts) with a great prize.

Need a little inspiration? While our area is incredibly beautiful, most don’t realize we do have a real problem with poverty and hunger. That’s where Factory Ministries comes in. This awesome organization is open to all, with one catch. Those who benefit from the help The Factory gives must show a real commitment to moving forward. They do this by attending seminars and receiving counseling. These activities earn them Factory Bucks that they can redeem for food in the Factory Kitchen. You’ll be supplying the food and, in doing so, helping folks who are working hard to change their lives. Pretty awesome, right?

Oh, and did we mention our Cranksgiving raised more food than any other ride in the nation last in 2016? You’ve gotta help us do it again!
