Founded in 1999 as a way for NYC’s messenger community to help feed the needy, the Cranksgiving charity bike ride has spread like a gravy of goodwill across North American bike communities. Now with local incarnations in more than 40 cities, Cranksgiving NYC is still the biggest and best of the bunch: last year’s ride brought out over 300 riders who collected thousands of food items — and a good chunk of bread — all in support of some very worthy causes.

BikeNYC spoke with event organizer Ken Stanek about what goes into making the year’s biggest-hearted bike ride happen. Read on, and get ready to ride!
