Bike to work/from work and play bicycle polo.

Bike to Work Day is this week! From 6-9AM on Wednesday the 23rd, you can find the Denver Mallet Mafia table just nearby the bike parking. Ryan and Max will be there early with their polo bikes and lots of mallets, as well as flyers for this page and possibly stickers.

Denver-based ad agency Cactus invites Denverites to bump handlebars with other bike enthusiasts during a happy hour party with food and drink, free beer from Breckenridge Brewery, wine from The Infinite Monkey Theorem, complimentary burritos from Illegal Pete’s, bike check-ups by Salvagetti’s, BMX stunts by the Yellow Designs Stunt Team, a bike polo demo by the Denver Mallet Mafia, free bike valet by Bike Denver and DJ spins. Cactus parking lot.

Saturday (the 26th) Pickups at 13th and Emerson!!

Since we are exposing this page to hundreds or thousands of bicyclists in Denver this upcoming Wednesday, Polo will be played on the school blacktop off the corner of 13th and Emerson. All cyclists are welcome!
