IT'S BIKE POLO, YO

Polo, yeah, it’s all horses and posh people and cucumber sandwiches, right? Think that and you’d be thinking wrong, friend, because we’re about to do polo Urban style: with cool people, in East London, and on bikes. This is the London 2012 Hells Belles Vol. 2 Hardcourt Bike Polo tournament and we want to see you there this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Come for one day, come every day, but make sure you get yourself down! Check out the video of last year’s event to see what you’re in for.



It’s three days of bike polo and hanging out, watching awesome people doing awesome stuff on two wheels (plus, it’s handily filling the sporting gap between Olympics and Paralympics). We’re not just an overjoyed sponsor of the event, one of our store managers is a team member. We caught up with some of the girls and boys who’ll be taking part and grilled them about everything we could think of. It was fun.
