The Temecula Community Pantry received more than 200 pounds of food Saturday when at least 40 cyclists participated in Temecula's first-ever Cranksgiving bicycle ride.

Sponsored by the Bike Shop and Temecula Bike Train, the event was described at part bike ride, part food drive and part social event, according to a news release. 

Cranksgiving riders started at the The Bike Shop and made stops at a half dozen markets, buying food to donate and deliver to the pantry.

Not to mention disobeying stoplights, stop signs, left turns from the right lane, cutting others off, causing accidents and near-accidents. And that can be a single cyclists, two or three or a whole pack... On top of that, Temecula and Murrieta police seem to ignore the situation and are irritated when you call their attention to these violations...
