  • As the honorary headquarters of the Tallahassee Bike Polo Society, Krank It Up provides a home for the unorthodox sport. Bike polo is a team cycling sport with two teams of three trying to score by hitting a ball into a net with a mallet.

    Everyone involved in the Tallahassee cycling community knows about Krank It Up, a community run bicycle shop that provides the people of Tallahassee a space to work on their bikes along with the necessary tools. Krank It Up is operated by volunteer bike mechanics and is funded by donations from patrons of the shop. In addition to offering a space for people to work on their bikes, the shop also sells refurbished bikes, hosts a variety of events and is the headquarters for the Tallahassee Bike Polo Society. I had the opportunity to talk with Danny Wood, a volunteer mechanic at Krank It Up.

  • “Since 2004, we have sent teams to tournaments all over the United States and we have several trophies at the shop from competitions. Not all volunteers play polo, and not all Tallahassee bike polo players volunteer at the shop, but bike polo and Krank It Up is a natural fit. We are always excited to help more people get into cycling in any way we can.”
