A visual view of visitors to the Minneapolis Bike Polo indoor court. Get your city on the map!
Spring lasted a week in Minneapolis this year. Its Summer now. With its arrival time speeds up and the time to blog is devoured.
We make time for polo however. We are still playing 4 days a week. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Bookmark @pickuppolo on Twitter for “day of” reminders.
Have you ever wanted to give hardcourt bike polo a try but were afraid to give it a go? Well here’s your chance.
This Saturday April 16th at 1pm and following Saturdays, as demand allows, Minneapolis Bike Polo will be holding “skills day” for beginners and intermediate players.
All you need to bring is yourself, a sturdy bike if you have one and a sense of adventure. We will have spare mallets to share and a few bikes to loan. Also if you bring $5 we will hook you up with a mallet head, ski pole and hardware to make your very own polo mallet.
Please spread the word to bike polo curious and as always keep an eye on @pickuppolo on twitter in case of inclement weather.
When: Saturday April 16th, 1pm-5pm (practices usually last 3-4 hours)
Where: Corcoran Park in south Minneapolis E 33rd St & S 19th Ave Minneapolis, MN 55407
Why: Because bike polo is about as much fun as you can have on a bicycle.
Our two main polo courts are now free of ice. Friday night and Saturday morning a crew of crazed poloists chopped and removed the last remnants of ice at Corcoran Park.
Look for updates on our set schedule but we are planning on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday this year.
In 2011 in Minneapolis we have had FIVE days over 50F. Two of them were this weekend and we took advantage.
