Bike Porn and Polo

Do you like custom bikes? Do you like bike polo? I'm driving to Indianapolis this Friday to go to the Hand Built Bike Show and play polo with kids from Indy, Chicago, and Lexington. Perhaps more. Perhaps someone will see the game and make the ultimate 26" cruiser/polo bike.

Depending on interest, I may go up to Chicago on Saturday for the final stage of the winter alleycat series up there, which is always a good time. If not, we'll just drive back from Indy Saturday night and be back in time for polo at Lindenwood. Hopefully there won't be any damn kids on the court this week.

This weekend and April 4th

In addition to the awesomeness that will be the gulf coast in February, there are two more things happening more locally in the polo-verse.

1. Friendlies in Columbia this weekend? Sunday Feb. 8th. I can drive one car, who's in?

2. Also in Columbia: The Columbia Roller Derby team is hosting the St Louis Roller Derby team on Saturday, April 4th. The crew at CoMO Polo suggested a Columbia vs St Louis Bike Polo match as the half time show to continue the theme. The idea was accepted. We need a team of three to go play a ten minute game against a Columbia squad.

Free access to the Derby and the after parties. I will buy fishnets and booty shorts for any players who dare to wear them. The folks in charge need to know the identities of the three St Louisans pretty soon, so they can make the playbill. Places to stay are arranged. Who's down? Which of us can plan that far ahead?

SESPI Feb. 14-15

Lucky, Dumptruck and I are heading down to Pensacola Beach for the SESPI FEB. 14-15, 2009.

I know it is a long drive but it should be worth it. Anyone else want to go?

Just think Bike Polo in shorts and a T-shirt, hard to remember what that is like.
