Dear Bicycle Community Enthusiasts,
Right when you feel like the world can’t keep up with itself in consumption, BAMMM! – the Umpteenth Quasi-Annual Yuba River Bicycle Festival happened up in the Sierra Foothills of Nevada City. The movement is inspired by community power, where the pedalers not only get from point A to point B, but they also power the speaker systems. This year was special because we welcomed back the Pleasant revolution crew “Bicicletas Por La Paz, Heather Normandale & Aisha, back from biking 1500 miles from the Canada border down to the Bay Area, California over the summer months. It was the Ginger Ninjas reunion, where Kipchoge and crew came back together after years break to rock the streets of Nevada City and the Barn two nights in a row. And, we had one of our most famous performers ‘Live-On-Bike”, the Polish Ambassador graced the stage with Ayla Nereo. To all the performers of the 2016 Yuba BMF, we solute you. And to all the bicycle and music enthusiasts that came out and helped pedal the revolution, Thank you from the bottom of our burrito bellies.
There aren’t too many days where you can see that many moving parts coming together to create just the right balance of chaos and connection to inspire what we call the Bicycle Music Festival that we love so much. If you want to get involved, please comment, email us directly, and start your own BMF in your city/town. We look forward to seeing the world we want to live in and it takes all of us doing the best we can to make it happen. Thanks for believing y’all.
The Polish Ambassador Live On Bike 2016 BMF.
