We Love Penn Cycle

Official partner of MPLS Polo

We’ve been busy as beavers getting ready to host Midwest Open October 13-14th and we’ve been as grateful as robins after the rain for a sponsor like Penn Cycle and Fitness. Penn Cycle has been supporting Minneapolis Bike Polo for several years. We are hard on our polo bikes and Penn’s skilled mechanics are always willing to go the extra mile to keep them in running order. They also don’t laugh at us when we put expensive leather saddles on what amounts to demolition derby car.

Cheesy homespun similes aside, we are extremely lucky and grateful to have a the power of Penn Cycle behind Minneapolis Bike Polo.

We faced Midwest rivals Illinois in the third place match and came out victorious with a 5-4 win. This was a big win for MN as we came together as a team and improved on our 11 to 3 loss to Illinois on Saturday.

Big thanks to Indiana Bike Polo for throwing an excellent tournament!
