Description
The game of Bicycle Polo, if you haven't already worked it out for yourself, is a variation of the equestrian game with a bicycle being substituted for the polo pony. Bicycle Polo was invented in Ireland in 1891 and emulates the game of regular polo. Although it is not as glamorous as the equine variety, Bicycle Polo offers as much challenge and fun without the prohibitive price tag.
