Cranksgiving Ride 2023

Save the date for the annual Cranksgiving Ride 2023 in beautiful Amish Country Pennsylvania, Saturday November 4th 2023. Pedal your bike through scenic rolling farmland, pass Amish families on horse and buggies, and ride through covered bridges. This years route also includes a section of the Warwick-to-Ephrata rail trail. The WERT was voted the ‘Best rail trail in PA’ by As always, Cranksgiving Lititz is 100% free to participate and ride. The ride will stop at 3 grocery stops along the 31 mile route, and each grocery store will have boxes for collecting all the items you purchase and donate (no carrying items on your bike :)). Speaking of donating, this is our 10th year hosting Cranksgiving and for this year we plan to celebrate with food trucks and free live music after the ride. We will also have a jersey swap after the event and an ENORMOUS SALE some really cool biking stuff. All participants must register in advance in order to ride. Registration links will be posted here soon, so please come back shortly.

Cranksgiving Ride 2023 is sponsored by Stauffers of Kissel Hill. All donations and food purchases during the Cranksgiving Ride 2023 will support Ephrata Area Social Services.

Stick around after your ride and enjoy some fantastic eats from Halos Eatery. They will be at the bike shop from 11-1pm to serve up some hot dishes from their new food truck.
