Red Hook Criterium THIS WEEKEND!

This weekend we are a proud sponsor of the Red Hook Criterium, an underground midnight bicycle race happening in Brooklyn, NY. We are excited to be a sponsor of this event, we will be on hand with coffee for  racers and spectators. We have some great prizes in the works for the winners too! Make sure to come watch the event if you can.

The Red Hook Criterium is an unsanctioned bicycle race through a desolate post-industrial area of Brook­lyn. Track bikes are mandatory and the field consists of elite level roadies, bike messengers, and urban cyclists. The race distance is 20 laps around a .75 mile circuit which features several hairpin turns, a technical chicane, a cobblestone stretch, and a sprint finish. The Red Hook Criterium has developed a new and unique style of cycling event which combines the underground art of street racing with the intensity of high level com­petition in a fun spectator friendly atmosphere. First held in 2008, the Red Hook Criterium has quickly become established as a prestigious and much-loved event in both the local community and greater cycling world.
