Friends at RockStar Games invited me to shoot the Red Hook Crit — a series of bike and running races at the Brooklyn Marine Terminal.
“The Red Hook Criterium is an unsanctioned race series consisting of world class road racers, track specialists, bike messengers, and urban athletes competing over multiple laps around a short, technical circuit. Fixed gear track bikes are mandatory requiring riders to possess both street tuned handling skills and high levels of fitness.” More here >
Time Out New York has a bike guide in the current issue. The route from Red Hook to Manhattan Beach is really appealing — if I weren’t cycling in the Five Boro Bike Tour this Sunday, I would give it a go. Maybe next weekend. In the meantime, check out the front-wheel drive on this push-bike in Red Hook.
