Do you think they really played it? I played bike polo a couple of years ago. Now I wonder what the heck I was thinking. I could have gotten really hurt.

me guess would be that the sum total of their preparation was the time spent in the makeup chair

just look at their mounts! big heavy ungainly things with wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide handlebars

every picture one sees of velo polo shows machines with very narrow bars...even chopping off one side of the bar for mallet clearance/freedom of movement

one sees many small wheeled cycles employed for their nimbleness & ease of maneuver

if these ladies ever played in a game the studio would have carefully staged (choreographed!) it...

Does this count? He's not pedaling but he is on a bicycle? I just saw this watching the Jack Benny Show. Sort of a Sunday tradition here as Trash Panda Werks, right after The Thunderbirds.



When Mary Livingston asked why he didn't take a cab he replied, I was walking across the street and he ran into me!

Cinelli Fans : Steve Jobs, Fidel Castro, and Eric Clapton

I found these in images of an old (1990?) Cinelli catalogue. In another thread about one of my bikes (this Cinelli) I called out that it's the same one Castro has in his hands in the picture. Hilarious


Eric Clapton with a Cinelli


Fidel Castro with a 1989 Mens Sana In Corpore Sano (Sound Mind in a Sound Body) Cinelli
