A few of our bike loving friends are putting on a seemingly kick ass bike party. The funds from this shindig will benefit Madison Bike Polo. Madison runs deep with polo talent, but the facilities around here are pretty awful.
Madison Bike Polo is looking to raise some funds to not only sustain the sport, but to build proper polo courts for practice and tournaments. Madison has played host to a number of fantastic polo events over the years and we’d love to see the sport grow.
Word is that there will be some sweet silent auction swag to win. The Facebook event says there will be beer at the party, but it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to BYOB.
Ride from Machinery Row leaves at 8:45pm. Party starts at 9pm.
Hop on your bike and head to the party. Some of Madison’s best DJ’s will be there, so bring your dance pants!
Spring is finally here and although it’s been a bit rainy and chilly out, that doesn’t mean that summer isn’t just around the corner. Summer brings us all wonderful riding, whether it be road, mountain, rail trails, gravel, or simply cruising around town. One tell tale sign of summer is that the tennis courts around the cities of Wisconsin bustle with bike polo!
For anyone who may not be aware, Wisconsin has some kick ass bike polo teams. Madison and Milwaukee often represents at many local, regional, national, and international tournaments! One of the most decorated teams is a combination of players from Madison and Milwaukee. That’s not to leave folks from Appleton or Eau Claire out of the picture…polo has been popping up EVERYWHERE in the past few years, but the two biggest cities in the state seem to be doing it up, way big.
New riders or folks who may be curious to see what all the buzz is about, are welcome to stop by Madison and Milwaukee’s home courts on Sunday afternoons. There are several pick up games and plenty of folks looking to recruit new riders to keep the sport strong and alive.
Madison has hosted a couple of large sized tournaments that have drawn riders from all over the country, boosting our bike economy and helping put Wisconsin on the map as a sort of polo mecca.
Check out the details below on how you can get in on some sweet polo action!
