TODAY is breaking out our bikes for a good cause: to replenish food banks ahead of the holiday season. 

We're taking part in Cranksgiving, a nationwide "food drive on two wheels" where participants pedal to multiple food stores, purchase non-perishable goods and donate them to those in need. 

The following TODAY anchors are joining Cranksgiving rides in these five cities on Saturday, November 22:

Want to ride with Team TODAY? RSVP here. 

If you can’t join us in one of these cities, there may be a ride in your region. Please find additional information at Show TODAY if you're participating in a Cranksgiving event with #CranksgivingTODAY.  

You can also help TODAY reach our goal of raising 1 million meals by Christmas with the help of Feeding America. 

For the TODAY rides, click on the cities above to find more details including a starting time and meeting place specific to each event. You'll receive a predetermined route from event organizers the morning of the ride. 

Be sure to bring your own bike, helmet, lock, bag and cash to purchase the food you'll donate at the end of the route.

Please check in with a TODAY representative when you arrive. The first 100 participants in each city could receive a special surprise. 

Cranksgiving started in 1999 in New York City and has since spread via grassroots efforts to nearly 60 events around America. 

The appeal: Riding bikes and doing good, said Ken Stanek, the organizer of the New York City event. 

"You have a whole swath of people ride who normally wouldn't hang out together," he said. "They're all doing it for people who need it way more than them."
