If you like media stuff check out Quebec’s La Presse for anĀ  article (in french) on bike polo and fixed-wheel in London. If you’d rather read in English have a look at Cooler magazine for a look at our very own Trixie Chix. Finally if you’re after some cheesy bike smut, check out Bust magazine.

Bike polo tournament – August 17 2008

Put it in your diaries now, the next big London bike polo tournament will take place on August 17th 2008 in conjunction with the Shoreditch Festival and the Tour de Shoreditch. We are sorting an exciting new court which should be a great improvement on the Brick Lane area. The festival organisers are expecting around 5000 people to show up to the event so it will be a great showcase for polo.

If you are interested in taking part, post here to register your teams interest (or if you dont have a team to find other people who are in the same position). We also need volunteers to help out, leave a comment or post on that thread.

More details soon!
