Cranksgiving 2021

Ride your bike.
Make a difference.
That’s what Lititz Bikeworks’ Cranksgiving is all about. It costs absolutely nothing to register and you get so much in return. Like the ride itself. You’ll love the scenic spin through the most beautiful Amish farmland in Lancaster County, including 2 covered bridges and the fall foliage along the WERT rail trail. All we ask is that you purchase non-perishables at each grocery stop along the route.
Choose from a 3-stop 30-mile route and a 1-stop 1-mile route that stays right on our campus. There will be a donation area at each grocery store where you can place your purchases (no worries about carrying them with you on your ride. The goal here is to feed as many families as possible, not to weigh you down!).
The event benefits Ephrata Area Social Services. We’re so impressed with the heart and soul of this organization, which does so much for local families.
Like last year, this year we’re opting for a rolling start. Riders can arrive any time between 9am and 11:30am. The course will be marked carefully, taking cues from lessons learned in previous years.
While registration is free, we do ask you to please register on This lets us know how many folks to expect, and helps us to plan with the grocery stores.
