Holiday Park - Bike Polo (Thriller Crew Edition)

I went out to Ft. Lauderdale last night to meet-up with the Thriller Crew for their weekly Tuesday nights of bike fun & games. I arrived shortly after 10pm to the Holiday Park hockey rink which was the ideal location for bike polo. The turn out was great, there were about 20 riders and some spectators. The night consisted of a few games of bike polo, foot-down, drinking, tricks & bicycle tomfoolery. It was 3am before I even realized it, time flies when you're on a bike. I wish there were more polo mallets available last night, I'm going to attempt to make my own mallet soon. I need some riser bars too as I was the only one with drop-bars which were a big disadvantage. All in all it was a great time.





I unknowingly disrespected the Thriller Gods by sporting a pair of gloves instead of just one glove. I was doused with moonshine & set on fire for this offense.



On a sad note my Cinelli - Unicanitor saddle cracked earlier that evening at the velodrome. It was later put to good use as a moving obstacle during the game of foot-down. "It's Italian!"



On October 7th the plan is to ride from Ft. Lauderdale to Hollywood. Bikes, beers, & ice cream? Should be a fun 19mi ride.

Make sure you check out the Thriller Crew site for additional photos & Ft. Lauderdale velo goodness.
