Polopalooza: casual bike polo pickup days
Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 1:30pm
Repeats: Every Sunday in July and August
By: JeffJoin East Van Bike Polo for some beginner-friendly, non-contact, casual pick-up games at the bike polo court in Grandview Park.
Notes: The bike polo court, duh
Anyone who is fairly comfortable riding a bike with one hand is welcome to have a go. All are welcome to spectate. Stop by for a game or two, or stick around until sunset if you like.
EVBP will provide mallets, nets, balls, a loaner polo bike or two, and a bit of mechanical advice/expertise if needed. You should bring:
-A solid bike (Upright handlebars work best. Do not play on a bike if you’re worried about keeping the paint job pristine, or if the brakes aren’t working reliably.)
-A helmet and proper footwear (no sandals or flip flops). Gloves are nice too.
-Any food or drinkstuffs that you need to help you enjoy an afternoon in the park.
-A good attitude.
