The Red Hook Criterium has grown steadily over the last 7 years. The success of this event is directly related to a fleet of volunteers who donate their time and sweat to help make everything run smoothly. We are expecting this event to be our most successful yet and we are graciously asking the community to once again help us out. We will launch Volunteer registration on March 3rd.
