The 2013 Albany Cranksgiving alley cat will be held on November 23rd at 7pm at the Henry Johnson Monument in Washington Park. Bring a bike, backpack, lock and about $25 for shopping.
An alley cat is a typical bike messenger race, but Cranksgiving is a bit different. You are given four or five manifests and on those will be a few simple turkey dinner items. You ride to the market and pick up those items. Come back, show your receipt and then get the next one. The finish is always at the local watering hole and the food from the race is donated to Albany Homeless Action Committee.
If this is your kind of thing, come out and have some fun on your bike, all for a good cause.
