"Possibly the best annual alley cat race LA has to offer, the Cranksgiving charity race has raised money and donated food to Para Los Ninos every Thanksgiving season for the last EIGHT years!
Cranksgiving was originally conceived and promoted by NYC bike messenger Tone Rodrigues as a way for the New York Bike Messenger Association (NYBMA) to give back to people less fortunate than themselves, over 10 years ago. In 2001, a couple of LA messengers went to Budapest, Hungary for the Cycle Messenger World Championships (CMWC's). They met Tone there, heard about the race, and decided to organize their own Cranksgiving race in LA that year.
Cranksgiving is now held in cities around the world donating to various charities and causes just in time for Thanksgiving. Come out, race for a great cause, and be a part of the Cranksgiving spirit!!" [via]
