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.

Show them some love by visiting Penn Cycle on Facebook or Twitter

Stupor Bowl 13 Garage Polo

Last Friday night after the Stupor Bowl 13 pre-registration party at the Nomad, the polo crew, including a number of our friends from Milwaukee, cruised over to the garage and got in some late-night polo on a dark and slippery court. Everyone went down at some point on the slush that was just above the freezing point in the out-of-bounds zone. That said, it was a lot of fun until the ultra-passive transit employee sort of told us to leave, kind of. Well enough, I thought, as it was 2 a.m. and I had to get ready to race. If you’re interested, visit my blargh for a race recap and photos.

Ebbin Attacks!

Voting for Midwest Regional Reps

As the Minneapolis club rep, I have three votes to cast for our Midwest Representatives to the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association. There are 5 candidates, including our very own Sven. I’d like to hear from you about what you think, even if it’s just to say, “I trust your judgement.” I must vote by Friday.

The candidates statements are here. There is a discussion about the election process here. This is the Midwest Region page, this is the Minneapolis club page. I encourage you all to get a login and subscribe to these threads on leagueofbikepolo.com, just so you’re aware of the organization at the least.
