Bike Polo Lives

Whereas shaved legs and pigeon-chested dudes are the norm in road-racing circles then beards and tats are the equivalent in bike-polo events! As one might expect there was a healthy dose of fun mixed in with some good competition as bloomingtonbikepolo held a small regional tournament on saturday afternoon over at Wright quad tennis courts. Most of the teams in attendance were at the beginning level and there were clear differences between them and some of the more expert traveling teams who showed some amazing balance and dexterity on their mostly fixed gear machines. The beauty of the event and sport in general is that all are welcome and there are weekly opportunities for anyone with any sort of bike to go along and give it a go. Practices are Mon and Thu 9:00pm-2:00am @ Wright Quad Tennis Courts. Go over to see what's going on and the next time take your bike.
State of the art machine, probably not what Masi had in mind....
