Memorial: George Galvan, Zak Smith, Will Traver, Will Tankard, and Samira

What do you get when you combine the low-impact aerobic workout of cycling,
the challenge of a racket sport, and the camaraderie of
a team sport? Bicycle Polo!


Polo is thought to be the oldest team sport
known to man, dating from the days when Persian warriors first
rode horses into battle. Bicycle polo evolved a bit later, having
had to wait for some clever chap to invent the modern bicycle. Polo
has long been known as “the king of games,” but the money and skills
required have greatly limited its popularity. Bicycle

American Vintage Bicycles

American Vintage Bicycles

Collecting American Vintage bicycles is a hobby many people don’t understand until they’re deeply immerged within their newly-forming obsession. Even those who love bicycles and bicycling, as I do, don’t know much about the world of classic bicycles.
