If you're going to play soccer on a bike play it on a court large enough to actually get some speed. A Basketball court would be fine if these guys were on unicycles I suppose but bikes?

+1 stoopid

Totally agree that the court is way too small. Also weird that the bikes have relatively large wheels. Wouldn't you want a whip-around light BMX with 20" rims for something like this?

Next time I find myself on basketball court on a bike with a soccer ball I'm gonna try a tail whip shot. I expect very little satisfaction.

Oh great.
Just what those bike polo playing turds need.
More ideas for taking over more public use spaces other than what they are intended for.
Bad enough those shits took over a tennis court.
Kiss the basketball courts and softball fields goodbye if they start doing this one.

Excellent! Now this is progress! Note the way it leaves your hands free for texting.
