Pueblo Bicycle POLOThere are rumors that a Pueblo Bike Polo League will be starting sometime in mid-June. The league is being organized by Scott Jones, former owner of Bob's Bicycles. He says the league is open to anyone that has a bicycle and wants to have some fun, but leave the overly competitive junk and bad attitudes at home. Friendly, positive shit talking is encouraged though. Here is the link to the Pueblo Bike Polo Facebook page with full league constitution and rules.
So get together a team of 2-3, come up with a unique team name, and you're ready to play!
