Race Date: February 4, 2017
Race start time: Ten am
Starting Line: The Richmond Bicycle Studio, 1717 Summit Ave, Richmond, Va
Cranksrising, 2017, is a Scavenger Hunt to benefit the Safe Harbor Shelter and to
bring awareness of One Billion Rising!
concept is simple:
Each two person team
gets a manifest
with lists of local store
stops in the City of Richmond and
needed items for Safe Harbor shelter, then they head out on bikes to see how
many items they can scavenge
and carry back to the finish
line. The fastest riders to navigate the streets and checkout
lines win prizes, although it is not all about speed. One of the
options on the shopping list will
be a perishable item which will take skill to deliver.
The items on the Safe Harbor wish list wil be donated to the shelter for
survivors of sexual and
domestic violence in time for Valentine's Day!
Packet pickup for those who want to get their manifest early and plan their race strategy will be on Thursday, February 2 from 5pm to 7pm at Lucky Foot at Willow Lawn- 1601 Willow Lawn Dr #838 Richmond, VA 23230.
Lucky Foot at Willow Lawn is located right next door to American Tap House! Otherwise, you can pick up your packet the day of the race at the Richmond Bicycle Studio between 830 and 930am!
There will be a pre-race meeting for all racers at the starting line at 945am to go
over rules and to organize racers! The top three teams in each category will win
prizes! In addition, the team that goes above and beyond the call of duty and
brings in the most items to donate in addition to the required items will
also receive a prize. Muscle Mechanix will be available
for post-race massages and stretching!
Remember, Be Nice, Be Safe
and Be Professional!
