One of the organisers sent this message:

Hello Fixie,
Not sure if you know about this, but we are helping organise a cycle event in London Fields on Sunday afternoon. Its aimed at upright lady cyclists, but of course all cycle tribes are welcome. Fixies may be particularly interested in our cinema tent. The guys from Magnificent Revolution are powering the projector and Ray Pascoe has put together a little programme of rare vintage cycle films for us. Its going to be really special! If you’d like to pop down after bike polo you’re all welcome to join us.

Hello European Bikepolo Teams

We’re glad to invite you to the first European Hardcourt Bikepolo Showdown. The Tournament will take place on the 18th of october as a part of the Bicycle Film Festival in Zurich. We have confirmed registration form all over Switzerland, Germany and the U.K. Of course the main challenge will be to beat the current european champion Team Basel.

So we promise that the journey to Switzerland will definitely be worth it. If you’re interested in entering the Bike Polo Tournament please write an email to jerome@thiriet.net to register.
