There is no better way to burn off some calories before a big Thanksgiving dinner than by signing up for Cranksgiving.

Hosted by Solar One (24-20 FDR Dr., New York City, NY), the feel-good event allows cyclists armed with $15 to $20 each to race as they make their way to five grocery stores to shop for Thanksgiving day supplies along a 12-15 mile route. Registration opens at 12:30 p.m. tomorrow and the ride begins at 2 p.m. Upon the completion of their routes, the food collected by riders is donated to City Harvest for donation.

After the ride, there is an after-party where awards for the fastest, slowest, and most generous riders will be handed out.

There is also an after-after party planned for Red Lantern Bicycles (345 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, NY).
