Vintage polo bikes rescued!

I’ve always wondered what was going on with the ancient polo bikes which were rotting away at Herne Hill Velodrome. They had been used for grass games in the past but recently we have heard nothing of them. So it was great to here that Rollapaluza CC has recently purchaed the 11 reminaing bikes and now plans to totally overhaul them so they can be used once again!

Apparently they need quite a lot of work on them so any donations of time and spare parts (26″ wheels!) would be much appreciated. The aim is to get them fixed up and suitably stored at Herne Hill so we can eventually play some grass games.

A few more details on London FGSS and photos from Flickr.
