April 3rd, 2011: The Pit

Horse Cycles

I stopped by Horse Cycles to visit Thomas and get a peek at his polo bike as he was working to finish it.

Thomas is a new player to NYC bike polo but that didn’t stop him from creating polo frame and fork for himself.

Here are a few photos from that day. And I’ll get some shots of the complete bike as soon as I can.

Travel Channel Sneak Peek

Last year I was working for The Travel Channel on a TV show about NYC bike messengers and finally they have a page on their site devoted to the show. This is the first I’ve heard the title of the show. Triple Rush.

Triple Rush gives you an insider’s look at the chaotic workings of 3 different NYC courier companies as they battle for survival in this intensely competitive industry…

I can’t wait to see more, but for now there are a few short videos, some intros to the cast of messengers, dispatchers and owners. Most of the photos you’ll see on the site is my work.

And here is a sneak peek slideshow of Triple Rush through some production stills of mine.

And the question everyone has been asking… When is it going to be on?

DAB Magazine Issue#1

DAB magazine, out of Rochester, New York, is the first devoted to bike polo. And here is a peek at the first issue.

It’s a good first effort with submitted writing, and photos. Also product reviews and event re-caps. Looking forward to more.

I heard the editor is open to submissions, if interested try the gmail address bikepolozine.

January 31st, 2011 The Pit

Not much polo going on this week. NYC broke the all time snow fall record for January.

And then there are our park neighbors. See this and this.

January 23rd, 2011 The Pit

Paul and Joe (SF) were at The Pit first with shovels.
I was there for that but left to watch the Flyers vs. Blackhawks game with Zach.
Later Paul had Frank draw Chicago Bench Minor Captains draft pick order out of a hat.
I remember a few names but not the full order.
I posted a thing on facebook.com/hardcourtbikepolo
The sun was out but it was super cold today.
