Dallas Cycle Chic Presents Bike polo. Dallas Cycle Chic invites you to a casual afternoon exhibition of the sport of Bike Polo at Glenco Park, Dallas.

If you’re interesting in trying it out, there will be a beginner’s clinic and games for first-timers, followed by some pickup games and a short single-elimination-style tournament at the end of the day.

We’ll have loaner mallets available. Just bring your bike and be ready to have a good time.

We also take pride in leaving our park cleaner than we found it, so if you have some time and would like to volunteer for setup, show up early. :)


Bike DFW will have a booth at Oak Cliff Earth Day at Lake Cliff.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
