Bike polo is one of the most challenging and fun things you can do on two wheels. I played last summer with the Axles of Evil crew and it was awesome. Blood was spilled and although I barely held my own against their mallet mastery, it was a hell of a good time.
I spilled blood, scored the game-ending goal mid-crash, and felt like I was baptised into the sport. But not everyone is looking for such an intense introduction.
If you prefer a more mellow pace with others that are trying it for the first time, you’ll be happy to hear that local polo stud and mechanic extraordinaire Tori Bortman is starting up a new club called the Peoples Republic of Polo. She’s kicking things off with a BBQ next Thursday (4/27), 6:00PM at Alberta Park (NE 22nd and Killingsworth). Bring something to grill and Tori will bring the mallets and bikes.
