Just a few snaps from this afternoon's bike polo demonstration tournament at Spitalfields Market, which is part of this weekend's East Festival. And gosh, what a fast-paced sport it is! There was a tangible sense of community amongst the participants and their cheering friends, a rare enough thing amongst cyclist these days, and the boys who pushed things a little too far and got a bit stroppy on the court were soon shouted down and kept in check. Strangely, the entire tournament semed to be referee'd by BBC comedian Dave Gorman.
If you're a fixed affictionado and fancy playing bike polo yourself see here.
Enjoy the photos...
