Red Hook Crit, the city's premiere (brakeless) bike race, rolls out this Saturday. The high energy, high stakes and highly popular event, held each spring in the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, makes for one of the year's best to watch. The main event starts at 9pm, but get there early to take advantage of free bike valet provided by Transportation Alternatives — while supplies last — and you'll also get to watch the qualifiers and a 5K foot race.

While you don't need to follow bike racing to appreciate the race's visceral thrills, for those looking to dig deeper, event founder and BikeNYC guest contributor David Trimble put together the Essential Red Hook Crit 2015 Guide to explain the basics, highlight top contenders and race strategy. 

Looking for something a little more low-key? Join Kidical Mass — a fun, safe, family-friendly bike ride — for a ride Uptown, or tour all twelve of the Bronx's bike shops with T.A.'s Bronx Activist Committee this Sunday.
