If you ride a track bike in New York City, and you have a pulse, you’ve probably heard of the Red Hook Crit: track bikes only with no brakes, raced in the middle of the night. What you probably don’t know is that this year it's going to be more awesome than usual. So awesome, in fact, that I am seriously considering putting off my usual old person bed time of 10.30pm to attend.
This year, G+D is not only a sponsor, but also the exclusive retailer for Red Hook Crit t-shirts, and leading the EMS Group Ride to Red Hook on Saturday night. So basically you can go to one guy to both dress you for and lead you to the event. What's more, I folded those shirts, so you will be purchasing vicarious contact with the triple whammy of G+D & Red Hook Crit & Pedalstrike!
But I digress. Come cheer on the racers this Saturday night before wrapping up the morning hours partying with like-minded bike people in Red Hook.
Because this is what riding a track bike in New York City is all about.
