3,2,1....... Polo! Bike Polo in Montreal
It is a bit odd to roll up to a hockey rink and instead of seeing a game of ball hockey underway there are a bunch of people on bikes, weilding home made croquet mallets. If you have encountered this you just had your first run-in with bike polo.
You don't need much to play, just a decent bike and your very own polo mallet fashioned out of and old ski pole and some PVC pipe and you are off to the races. If you want to give it a go you will be welcomed by patient enthusiastic athletes eager to share their sport with newcomers.
