At the corner of 2nd & Grace sits a vacant lot. And a ragtag band of friends from downtown Wilmington have turned it into their playground. At least twice a week, cycling advocates gather to burn some rubber playing bike polo.
The group is known as Port City Polo. Chris Barber, a member of PCP, reflects on the community that bike polo provided at a time when he lost hope.
We usually play Sunday at Jose Marti Park
Check Facebook to see where we're playing.
Hello and welcome!! Miami Bike Polo came together in March of 2011 with the intent to make it easy for anyone interested in playing bike polo. It has really taken off and we can't be more excited. We are still working very hard to keep you informed and organized plus we've made a bunch of loaner mallets so all you need to do is show up with your bike. We play weekly games that we organize at Jose Marti Park, Sundays around 2pm. It's also a great way to just hangout with fellow bike riders and unwind.
So for now, check out our website, learn about the game, make yourself a mallet if you want and we hope to see you on the court and having a blast! And if you've never played before, no worries, we still have a lot of new and first time players, so we'll have beginner games going every time we play.
If you'd like to stay in the loop, 'Like' us on Facebook or follow us on twitter. If you'd like to be involved, just let us know! Start a discussion on our forum, post on our wall, tweet your thoughts, etc… we welcome and encourage any participation :) THANK YOU and see you all soon!!
