Group Ride Cancelled & Individual Donations Encouraged
In consultation with Bike Burlington's board and in accordance with the governor’s current proclamation issued Tuesday, November 10th, the decision was made to cancel this year’s Cranksgiving ride (scheduled for this coming Saturday, November 14th).
While cycling has provided for a safe and healthy activity during this current pandemic, the club is erroring on the side of extra precaution. Demands on our healthcare professionals and resources are increasing, and we want to do our part to help minimize added exposure.
This was a difficult decision taken with a lot of thought as our local food pantry needs continue and the club’s yearly effort has always meant a great deal, particularly so for St. Vincent de Paul and Kayla’s Cupboard.
Along with the club's financial contribution, individual contributions are still encouraged. Needed items include:
- Shampoo / Conditioner
- Toothbrushes / Toothpaste
- Cleaning Supplies
- Canned Soup (w/ meat)
- Canned meats, vegetables, fruit
- Baked Beans
- Rice / Noodles / Instant Potatoes
- Hamburger Helper
- Brownies / Cake Mixes / Puddings
Thank you for your understanding & here’s looking towards Cranksgiving 2021! In the meantime, continued prayers to all for health, healing, and safety.
