MPLS HUB – Twin Cities Bike Polo


Chrome was born on a bike. When our MPLS Hub wanted to hold a bike polo exhibition out front during the extra-rad Minneapolis Open Streets event there was only one answer: Hell Yeah! In case you’re not hip to it, Open Streets is an initiative to close some of the main roads in Minneapolis to cars and open them up for biking, skating, walking and goofing off. Looks like everybody, even the cops, jumped in to get rad. 06.10.2016

“For the second straight year, we sponsored the Twin Cities Bike Polo Club at Open Streets MPLS: Downtown. This year, the club built a mini court (24×40) and showcased what their sport was about with 2v2 matches. The initial games were club members only but as the crowd of spectators grew, more Open Streets onlookers started to hop onto the court to get their first taste. There was even an officer from the Minneapolis Police Department that gave it a go. Overall it was a great event that drew countless spectators and grew community involvement with the bike polo club. The court was right in front of our shop and it undoubtedly drew traffic into the hub. 10/10 would do it again!” – Words: Bruce Wahl (MPLS Hub)
