The first annual Cranksgiving Cedar Rapids is happening Sunday, Nov. 19th! Pump up your tires, grab your helmet, bring a bag, a lock, your navigational skills and $15-$20 to buy food. Registration/Check-in at the shop starts at 12pm. You’ll be provided a manifest with a list of food items to buy from specific grocery stores around town, and time before the official start to strategize your route. At 1pm we’ll fire the starting gun and it’s up to you to navigate yourself to each grocery store ‘checkpoint’ to purchase the specific food items on our list. Once you’ve acquired everything on the list you must deliver the goods to the food pantry and make it back down to NewBo for the Caucho + Analog Vault after party. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest finishers. Your completed manifest, including all of your receipts, earns you a free pint from Lion Bridge Brewing Company and the Cranksgiving Cedar Rapids t-shirt from the folks at Bike Rags. Help us build community and have some fun along the way!

Wednesday night cyclocross practice is back! Bring your ‘cross bike over to Daniels Park in Cedar Rapids and throw down some practice laps from 5pm until dusk. Ride at your own pace on a marked course that features some beefy elevation spikes, fast descents, and barriers to help hone your skills. Whether you’re preparing for the racing season or just ‘cross curious,’ this series is for you! Practice will be held every Wednesday evening through October, but will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain and/or muddy conditions as to not damage the park grass.
