Throughout the endless summer of 2019, I got to know a diverse bunch of people who’d regularly meet at a court just south of the river Avon in Bristol U.K. This was a time long before social distancing, where you could share a beer with a stranger as the sun goes down over North street.
Bike polo reached Bristol over 10 years ago and its players have competed in tournaments all over the world. There are 5 main rules:
- 3 against 3
- Don’t put your foot down
- 10 minute game or 1st to 5
- Mallet on mallet, bike on bike, body on body
- Don’t be a dick
