This sport is a hoot!! Each week we join 12 - 15 members of the Cult of Bicycle Polo. These guys are good. But it is a friendly crowd and they welcome newcomers. Typically we play 4 on 4 with one team off and a few other sub ins. Just show up with a mountain bike and helmet. No experience or other gear needed. Weather may be a factor! Cycle polo is a team sport, similar to traditional polo, except that bicycles are used instead of horses. Polo is thought to be the oldest team sport known to man, dating from the days when Persian warriors first rode horses into battle. Bicycle polo evolved a bit later, having had to wait for some clever chap to invent the modern bicycle. Polo has long been known as "the king of games," but the money and skills required have greatly limited its popularity. Bicycle polo has a much broader appeal, since almost anyone can ride a bike, not to mention afford one. Anyone, male or female, aged nine to ninety, can play bicycle polo! Bicycle polo combines three key elements: cycling, racket sports, and team play. Most active people currently enjoy at least one of those by itself (e.g. mountain biking, tennis, or basketball); imagine how much fun it is to unite all three!
