Introduction to Bike Polo, October 22

by

on October 13, 2011   comments 0

As part of the Hub Bike Coop's Women's Appreciation Month, Kat & Greta are hosting an introduction to hardcourt bike polo day on Saturday, October 22.

This will be an opportunity to learn about the rapidly growing sport, try riding customized polo bikes, use homemade mallets, and get a feel for how the game is played.  We'll go over rules and equipment - but most of the time will be for getting people comfortable on the bikes. We may play a few games if people are interested!

Hardcourt Bike Polo is a fairly new sport to Minnesota, and the play is similar to hockey.  Teams of 3 use mallets to pass and shoot a ball into the other team's goal.  The first team to score 5 goals wins. 

Bike polo has become a huge part of my life over the past three years.  I have been able to travel across the country and meet rad people who share the same passion I have.  It's a really unique community that is always supporting eachother.  We'd love to have more women and transgendered people involved! 

Hope to see you on the court!

Happy Friday

Happy Friday

This morning I started out as the sun was lighting up the sky, the clouds were reflecting purple and pink and orange and yellow.  Leaves fluttered around my head from the trees above the Greenway, my tires crunched through drifts of yellow, sparrows and swallows buzzed my head.  The air smells wonderful, people are smiling.

I wanted to share that with you.

Now I'm sitting in front of my computer, with my bike next to me.  After I make like a banana and split, we'll be riding down to Occupy the People's Plaza in peaceful solidarity with the 99% and with the protests happening around the country and around the world.

See you out there, bike friends.
