Seattle Bike Polo

Yesterday while riding home from the Seattle Bike Expo, I stopped to watch a bit of bike polo at Judkins Park. The women and men playing have really good bike handling skills and it looked like they were having a lot of fun. According to a sign at the park, hard court bike polo was invented in Seattle.

Check out some nighttime bike polo sometime, Little Rock style. You gotta get in the mix.

Maybe hardcourt, but bicycle polo in general has been around a long time. Here's a link to photos of bike polo in Los Angeles, in 1930, and I think I've heard it goes back farther than that in France.

I think the Earl would be well suited for this. Your thoughts, Kent?

Kent Peterson said...

Yeah, I think the Earl would be a great polo bike.
