Polo, track and pedals

Posted by on May 25th, 2005 at 11:40 pm

If you ever wanted to try out bike polo (like regular horse polo, but on bikes) then tonight’s the night. Cruise yourself over to Alberta Park by 6:00 for a beginner-friendly polo session. More details here.

Or, how about turning some laps over at Alpenrose Velodrome. Yep, track season is heating up and Wednesday nights are Track Development Class night. It’s $5 for the class and $5 for a rental bike…but the experience of pedaling into the steep banks of the velodrome are priceless! More details here.

And I leave you today with a nifty product from the land of jockey boxes and blokes. In commuter crazy Portland this new pedal from the UK would come in very handy. It’s called the Pedalite and it’s a pedal with a light inside that requires no batteries and provides 360 degree visibility. A bit dorky, but I bet they work pretty well.
