The Red Hook Crit, is an adrenaline filled bike race that started in the streets of Brooklyn in 2008. This past Saturday, the desolate Brooklyn Terminal was packed with spectators cheering-on cyclists riding fixed gears (no brakes, no coasting whatsoever), blazing 28 miles any hour, tailing each other for 25 laps on a 1 mile loop course. Neil Bezdek finished first in 41:32 minutes!
I rode the same course afterwards and I could not for the life of me stop from instinctively hitting my breaks to slow down around each curve. #nogutsnoglory
The next race is June 9th in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, followed by Barcelona, then Milano.

New York artist, Jay Shells', most recent art project plots exact street corners mentioned from rap songs and prints them on to street signs. Pretty laugh out loud creative. His pieces camouflage so well with regular traffic signs. I can just imagine a big smile spreading on a hip hop fan's face as they realize what they've discovered reading....
It reminds me of riding out to 560 State Street back in 2009 when JayZ's Empire State of Mind was released. Making the connection from lyrics to location kinda adds to the context of the song, ya know?
