Humboldt Bike Polo, Acrylic on Panel, 48 x 48 inches, 2016
My Northern California bike trip took us through Arcata. Me? I was first generation Hippie. I started college in Denver because in the early 70s all the best Hippies wanted to be there. Today it’s Arcata, California. It’s a Hippie Theme Park fueled by bales of fresh Humboldt County weed. While dodging frisbees I noticed a fixie (single speed fixed gear bike) with a spoke card (laminated cards wedged in the spokes so they rotate with the wheel) that advertised Humboldt Hardcourt Bike Polo.
