Does it make me a bad person that I was a little disappointed that no one got knocked off?
And is it bad that this was the first thing I have used my bike for in well over a year?
I'm guessing the answer to both is yes.
In any case, we had a lot of fun. We had 10 jousters, a gaggle of judges, a handful of kids, and a few random spectators throughout the match who both enjoyed what we were doing and were a little in disbelief.
What is bicycle jousting? Well, it is like Medieval jousting, but instead of horses you use bikes, and instead of big wooden poles you use pool noodles.
While pool noodles were a good idea, they bent easily and didn't make for the kind of epic challenge I had envisioned. Which, thinking back, was probably a good thing.
I should mention we dressed up a little bit. Sir Gawain Gretzky and the Princess.
Harry Potter vs. Dr. Claw (or something like that)
Han Solo vs. Red
Teen Wolf vs. The Blue Bullet.
Pink Peddler vs. Crazy Man
Yep, it's official. I have the best friends ever.
I should mention, that finished my 30 Things to Do Before 30 list. Only a little late. Thank goodness I received that extension.
And because I know you wanted to know what it feels like...
