Twin Cities Bike Polo blog

Minneapolis Bike Polo is now known as Twin Cities Bike Polo, or TCBP for short. After many years of operating under the Minneapolis name, we decided it was best to represent the metropolitan area as we play in both Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Now that the concrete has been power washed, the boards are back at the warehouse, and the Oval’s skateboarders have returned, we have a moment to reflect on the past weekend.  And what a weekend!  Below is our thanks, not in order by any means. Gary Crandall – I finally understand the etymology of the ‘Crandall Award’.  Thank you sir for all you have done for us and over the years!

Last night’s experiment of blasting Lily Allen during polo was interesting at the best. Soon as there was a break in the game, players would try and get their phone plugged in to change up the tunes. So why does Lily Allen’s music not work well with polo? Just not aggressive enough? Too much pop in a short period of time? Really this experiment just raises more questions about polo players then it ever answered.However we did find that players were content with more underground’ish hip-hop. Aggressive, loud, and funny seemed to be what the mood calls for.

In case you haven’t heard, this winter has been good to us so far.
