Bike polo demonstration games during Lexington’s “Second Sunday” street closure. We set up a temporary polo court right on Main Street in the heart of downtown, and played the entire 4 hours of the event.
Damn, I bet that was fun. I wonder if they had any newcomers give bike polo a try. It’s great the city gave you that much space! And look at those goals, wide enough to drive a truck through.

Brian in Lexington sent me a link to this photo of a no name kids 20″ cruiser bike with the words “polo bike” on the chain guard. I think it was at a swap meet in Kentucky. Seems interesting enough, I like the pedals and that looks like a good ratio. Has anyone else seen one of these?
