Red Hook Crit was started by David Trimble who wanted to celebrate his birthday by throwing a bike race. Such a great idea. Be prepared in seeing a lot more cycling related post from me. I recently got my first road bike and I’m hooked, clipped, and loving it! I’m also constantly learning … like what is a criterium? According to Wiki, it’s a short course (usually less than 1 mile) race often run on closed-off city center streets with the race length determined by a number of laps or total time. Sweet. Here are some videos I’m crushing on from the 2013 Red Hook Crits … like I said, melt me!
