Road to RedHook follows four talented women as they gear up for the second year of the women’s Red Hook Criterium in Brooklyn, New York. The Brooklyn race is one of a four-part international cycling championship that pits fixed-gear athletes against one another in a high-speed, high-stakes race. As director Serena Rio wrote, this video was made to “remind all those hopefuls out there that sometimes the hardest part of racing is just getting to the starting line.” You can follow Rio on Instagram here.
