You can do it, Nashville. Cumberland Transit is kicking holiday food drives into two wheel-drive — Cranksgiving style.

The national event takes place in 100+ cities each year, bringing cyclists together for a cause. All you need is a bike, a lock, and $15-$20 to buy food to donate along the way.

This year, Cumberland Transit organized a ride in the 615 on Sat., Nov. 19 with a departure from the shop — 2807 West End Ave. — at 10 a.m. You can make your own route of five stops to get five items used to make a Thanksgiving dinner, or follow the suggested route provided to you. Items will be donated to Second Harvest.

Interested in organizing your own event next year? Learn how to get started + add our city to the map.
