GeneralBikes:We have had equal success playing on low ratio track bikes and mountain bikes, fixed or free -it's all a matter of what you're comfortable on and what you've got. We have also had success in destroying some very expensive bikes and parts, so keep that in mind. We, the players, usually turn out all right though.
MoviesGames start with opposing teams on their goal lines with the ball in the middle. Following a count down from 3, both teams charge the ball and play is continuous until there is a goal. After a goal, the team just scored on gets possession at their goal line. They may start play as soon as the opposing team has crossed the opposite goal line. Matches are first team to five or, in the case of a timed game, high scorer in 15 minutes.
