Birds of a Feather...

Y'all can decide what's going on here...Alexis looks like a lost child captured by a pack of hyenas. Good luck boy!

Post Polo Shennanigans at the BFF closing party

R-L: Alexis, Doug, Zak, Chombo
Robbie and Chombo, scheming I'm sure...
Aw Cecileeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!! My partner in polo!
Chombo(again!), Katie, Adrienne, Cecily...

Robbie you're an animal!

It's true that Robbie plays hard but I have no idea how he ate this whole heifer. From now on he's Robbie Boar!

Not just a Bird's Eye!

Chris and Birdseye celebrate after the tournament. I think what's going on in the background of this picture is much more interesting that these two hooligans! We love you guys!

More fifo hats!

Alexis is a champ!

Alexis shows off his winnings after the final showdown on Sunday. He won a fifo hat and a shirt among other things. Alexis also made prizes for us - a set of 3 sweet top-tube pads with Maple leaves all over them. He's a true patriot!

Noah! You're my top model!

Richard Kim was the coordinator for the BFF street party and his sister Leslie and her son Noah very kindly helped me out at my table. The least I could do was give little Noah a fifo hat for all their hard work standing in the rain. If this little face doesn't sell hats I give up!

"Where the F is the other F?"

As I turned onto 2nd St at 2nd ave on Saturday I noticed some Bicycle Film Buddies were missing their third. Eventually we found the other F and I headed on the the street party where Fifocycle had a table and some hats to sell...

Barbeque at 2nd Chance!

We had a little registration gathering at Second Chance on Grand St on Friday evening. Cecily scored some great organic burgers from her work and we went and put some cheese on them...they were pretty yummy!

You can take a Canadian out of Canada...

...and you can give him a polo bike and mallet, but you can't guarantee that he'll play polo. Both Robbie and Alexis made use of some hockey sticks on Saturday while we waited for the rain to stop. It didn't. But they look funny when they run!

I POLO NY: Yes we did!

Thanks to all who turned up for the first I Polo NY jam!! I'm a little late in posting the incriminating photos but please pass them on to everyone and their mother. We had a lot of fun and got the whole tournament done on Sunday with time left over for the final Bicycle Film Festival Screening. I hope we can do it again next year!

I POLO NY t-shirt

Yep we're making a shirt for the tournament. Here's the mock-up! Start saving your pennies kids 'cos you'll need one of these when the shirt you brought with you gets ripped to shreds on the court!
Also, check out updates to the tournament info over here:

I POLO NY: Bike Polo Tournament!!

Some of you mentioned to Cecily and I at the last couple of tournies that a mid-summer polo round-up in New York would be simply delightful. So we're organizing for the weekend of Jun 20th and you can bring either delight or terror to NYC!! We're ready...

...All day Grudge Matches/Team Pick-Up on Saturday. Double elimination, battle to the bones, on Sunday. Come with a team, or don't. Maybe you'll get to play with them, maybe you won't. Everyone must bring a prize: make a disc wheel; write a polo anthem; bake cookies!!! Bonus points awarded for most creative prizes. Friday night BBQ, Saturday night Bicycle Film Fest Party. Get your crayons out kids!

Leon Love Fifo Too!

Leon from Seattle plays one of his less exciting games.

Gus: The Host With the Most


Survived Another Tournie!

Drew from Seattle Haggles

Polo is heart-wrenching!

Ryan from D.C can't hold it together in a hat from the Spring Collection. Cecily has one of my earlier hats and is determined to laugh it into the ground.

Yeah West Coast!

Nano and Amanda of Seattle have Fifo hats too! Drew is pretendin' to be a Londonna.

Fifo at the East Side polo Invite IV

Well I guess it was worth it spending most of last week sewing hats to bring to the ESPI in Boston this past weekend. The new Vinyl brims were a hit...I sold every one! Thanks to everyone who helped soften the blow of my polo defeats by buying a Fifo hat!

Two Punctures this week!

I could go on a little rant about my series of unfortunate punctures in the last week but instead I'm going to look forward to what can only be a few weeks away now...Springtime! To get me in the spirit I've put this picture of our Audrey on my "Inspiration for Spring" board and am looking out for a lovely lady bike to float around on in the approaching warmer months. Then all I need is a pup and a handkerchief and I'm set!

Fifo Launch and Time's Up Valentine's Party

That's right! All of you who have waited so long for a fifo hat will finally be able to get some (hats that is!) online on Saturday, February 14th 2009! And if getting some in the form of a hat just doesn't cut it for you this V-Day then you can join me and my Time's Up buds as we ride in a love parade through Manhattan and on to Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
