In North America it has been talked about for years and with one Instagram post, it looks like our dream may finally come true.
With that message posted along with the photo above, Detroit Bike Polo is born! The post came from the Instagram handle @killabeards211, who is known to the real world as Mike Ross. We wish Mike the best of luck starting the club; in fact let’s all keep your fingers crossed for him. There have to be so many amazing old hockey courts that are no longer being used, and even better than that, there surely are old warehouses or even stadiums where amazing indoor tournaments could be held.
As I mentioned before, we all have joked about the polo Mecca potential of Detroit, here’s to you, Mike, for starting the future of bike polo!
I know this isn’t exactly hardcourt bike polo related, but the fact that Levi’s FINALLY created a women’s line for their Commuter series is so exciting. The new line has three colors of skinny jeans (denim, black, and grey), denim jean shorts, a windbreaker, and a waterproof jacket. You can find more info on each article HERE. You can also check out Levi’s promo video for the women’s Commuter line below:
The North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association (a.k.a NAH) has proposed a new Obstruction rule for the 2015 tournament season. They will be testing out the rule this weekend at the Great Lakes Winter Classic in Toronto. We look forward to hearing how it works out.
In the mean time, be sure to familiarize yourself with the potential new rule. You can find the latest draft as well as some GIF examples (Thanks Mr. Do!) below:
Wow. Just Wow. The custom paint job on this Bank Robber Cycles hardcourt bike polo frame is seriously beautiful. It’s so amazing would have a hard time playing on this frame. I’d rather frame it and put it on wall than let it get destroyed on the court. Be sure to follow Bank Robber Cycles on Facebook so you can check out all of the amazing bikes coming from those dudes!
