For anyone looking for something new, exciting, and different:
Bike Polo in Baton Rouge!!!
It's not just for hipsters anymore, come out and knock around a ball while on the bike. Fixies (track bikes) encouraged but not necessary, all skill levels welcome and encouraged. Great practice for better handling skills!!!
Sure you can sprint up to 40+ but can you stay on the pedals at 2mph while smacking a ball with a mallet???
Polo mallets provided, all you need is your body and bike.
Helmets are reccomended and expect to use it at least a little.
Sunday afternoons at Expressway Park (South St. and East Blvd, under the I10-/110 interchange)--its safe and fun, really!
