Last Stand Waterfront Bike Polo Tournament [SIV184]

by

7/10/10: Combine bikes, polo mallets, and a DIY aesthetic and what do you get? Bike polo, an alternative sport that is sweeping across North America and beyond.

Last weekend, Burlington Hardcourt Bike Polo hosted teams from Ottawa, Montreal, DC, Boston and Portland Oregon at their Last Stand Waterfront Bike Polo Tournament.

This was their "last stand" because their scenic Waterfront court (off the bike path) will soon be transformed into a parking lot as part of the Moran Plant Redevelopment.

Music: The Breaking In, "Cramp It Up"
