Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

and you should come down to NYC for the ESPI! it's on the last weekend in April... It don't matter if you're good or bad, it'll be an awesome time! We got a lot of shenanigans planned... including a race and party!

Good times guaranteed.

Hi.

Come to ESPI. Do it. You want to. Next weekend, 27.-29.April in NYC. Opening night party Friday night, followed by Two full days of polo, culminating in the presentation of the ESPI Cup and other prizes.

Additional events include racing (with polo bike category), bike prom, kissing booth (possibly not just kissing the pavement, this remains to be seen...), and all kinds of other shenaniganry. So show up. You want to, and we want you to.

One more thing, and this is super important: Tournament begins promptly at 10.00h on Saturday. I know that's early and I kind of hate it too, but the sun is going to go down at 20.00h regardless, so we have to get this started on time.

Let's rip it up.

EDIT: Come even if you think your team isn't that great because a) polo matches are unpredictable and a few lucky bounces makes a big difference, b) you're going to have fun anyway, and c) every team will be guaranteed a minimum number of matches, even if you lose them all 0:5.
