We want to send a warm and welcome HAPPY MESSENGER APPRECIATION DAY to all of the bike polo playing bicycle couriers out there in the world. We thank you for all of the work you have done. Without messengers, we wouldn’t have this amazing sport that we are all in a love/hate relationship with.

A special ‘Thank you’ is due to Timothy Mason and Matt Messenger for being the only original 6 who continue to play the sport to this day! You are both living legends.

The Sprocket Talks Bike Polo

October 7, 2014
The Sprocket Podcast

A couple weeks ago I was approached by the host of a Portland based podcast about cycling called The Sprocket. He was interested in doing a show about Portland Bike Polo, as well as hardcourt bike polo as a whole. He wanted to have a male and female present to gain a more broad point of view on the sport. So I scooped up fellow Portland Bike Polo player Raggy, and we made an appearance at the studio in SE Portland. You can find the full interview HERE!

I’m sorry in advance for sounding like a dummy.

About a year and a half ago, Dany Majard showed off his custom 5-0 frame by SingleBe for our Bike Check series. With the huge praise that SingleBe gained for the work on Dany’s bike, they decided to do a full run of 26″ 5-0 framesets. At only €450+shipping for these awesome hand-built frames, I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of these popping up on courts in 2015.

To pick one up, hit up Dany Majard via Facebook or head over to the SingleBe website!

As the nights become a little longer and the days a little shorter, the temperature slowly creeps it’s way closer and closer towards zero. This is the mark of the beginning of Fall/Autumn, my favorite time of year. It’s time for pumpkin flavored everything, changing flora colors, and layers upon layers of clothes. Thanks to Chunk Bike Polo, you can sport bike polo on every layer that you’re wearing: t-shirts, long sleeves, jackets, and even pants.

Check out Chunk Bike Polo‘s Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection featuring the super sleek TRACK JACKET seen above!
