WE Bike NYC Upcoming Events
Saturday, November 6
Restoration Plaza, Brooklyn
Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, and part scavenger hunt. Riders race (or casually bike) around to different grocery stores in Brooklyn, buying Thanksgiving food items. All food is donated to the Bowery Mission. You'll need a bag, a lock, and about $20 to participate.
This year's ride will look a bit different in order to be more COVID-friendly and to ensure that we maximize the impact of the donations our community partners receive. Instead of visiting supermarkets to buy food to donate to charity, participants will cycle around Brooklyn, stopping at various checkpoints where they'll have to snap a picture and upload to social media or complete a fun task or trivia question. Riders can also donate directly to charities at these checkpoints so please bring cash ($20 is recommended but you can bring as much or as little as you like).
WE Bike NYC hosts a meetup at Cranksgiving to encourage more women, female-identifying and gender nonconforming folks to join the event. WE'll provide a friendly face to greet you, explain how everything works, help form teams, and strategize for the ride.
Note: This meetup is for women, female-identifying and gender nonconforming people only. However, Brooklyn Cranksgiving itself is open to everyone.

WE Bike for Fall Leaves and Hot Bevs
Sunday, November 21
Meet 1:00 pm, wheels down 1:30 pm
Tavern on the Green, Central Park
Join WE Bike NYC for a fun, beginner-friendly ride through Central Park and the Upper West Side. WE'll meet at the lot north of Tavern On the Green in Central Park, near Central Park West and 67th St. From there WE'll ride around Central Park and exit at the north end, then take the Columbus Ave. protected bike lane down through the UWS. WE will end at the farmer's market behind the Natural History Museum where we can purchase hot apple cider. There will also be the option to get hot chocolate from Jacques Torres nearby. Total distance is about 6 miles. All bikes are welcome, but note that we will climb a couple hills (although we're skipping the biggest hill in Central Park!).
All riders are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. WE will be checking vaccine cards/apps. Participants are not required to wear a mask while riding, however you may be required to wear a mask if we go indoors or at crowded ride stops.
This event is open to women, female-identifying and gender nonconforming people only
