Bellingham Pre-LA5 Shitshow and ride
Bellingham bike polo welcomes the poloverse to come and hang out between the Portland boot camp tournament and the LA5 tourney.
On Wednesday May eighth we welcome any and all interested in pickup followed by a toss-in tournament, starting at 5 pm. Before the tournament is a day of BBQ, Bike repair and swimming. Following the tournament is a night of heavy boozing, poor dancing, and some rock and roll provided by Bellingham's own Black Beast Revival; additionally anyone interested is welcome to join us on a night time unicorn tour of Bellingham. Sleeping accommodations will be provided. There will be no prizes for the tournament, but the winner of the kiddie pool wrestling tournament gets a commemorative statue
Thursday May 9th we welcome anyone interested to bike up to Ladies Army, on our polo bikes. The ride is mostly flat with two large hills and plenty of stops; roughly 40 miles total. Along the way is a six mile single track section, a pump track, the Canadian border and a skate park. Once we enter Surrey we catch the Sky train to Vancouver and are 6 blocks from the Grandview court. We are expecting a slow place and planning on a total of five hours on the road. If you are interested in providing a support vehicle, or have questions about getting to Bellingham, please contact me at email@example.com
