Columbus Bike Polo

You will need a Myspace account to see the site

Columbus Bike Polo's Blurbs
About me:
we are a group of people playing polo in columbus. we are not a club. just people playing a game, a game that you can also play. the weather is the key factor now as to whether we play. sundays at 2pm on the court at lane and high is our current weekly game, although we tend to play on week nights when the weather is good. contact us with your info if you would like to be called or texted about last minute games. don't worry about how good or bad you think you will be, or what kind of bike you have. come as you are and play. ps. go out, buy some ski poles and pvc pipe, and make mallets. the more the merrier.

Mark your calendars for the next Alley Cat Race


I believe this race is organized by the same group who did the Bum Shuffle.

More details as they are revealed.

Zach and I at the station.

I will be on the local radio show Cranksters on Friday January 25 on WCRS FM 98.3/102.1 FM. Zach and I talked about the blog for about 15 minutes. The show is an hour long and I do not know when I will be on. So I recommend everybody listen to the entire show. Support local independent radio.
