UPDATE (Event Recap): BAM was great, it is looking year by year like the Woodstock for bicycles, as many journalists say. About 400 tents and 600 people in the camp area, 500 people who came really fully loaded ready to travel, more than 1000 cyclists took part in our 3 organised rides and along the weekend about 5.000 presences (bikers, visitors, etc.)

Mantova is a perfect place with beautiful town, gravel roads, bike routes, and a local administration which believes in the developement of bicycle touring. Our community is really cool and various, with Extreme bike explorers together with sunday little adventurers who share the same passion. Our motto is take your time and go far. And you can go far even not far from home if you live the bike that way.

We had a lot of talks from the stage and BAM is really a place where we create a movement of people. Technical talks and stories with superguests plus concerts, beer and a general really cool and relaxed atmosphere. The mayor rode with us and already confirmed his attendance for next year.

It’s back! The fourth edition of the largest bikepacking and cycle touring expo in Europe!

BAM! is the European meeting of biketravellers, biketourers, bikepackers and all those who live the bike ride as an adventure: three days of long and short collective bike rides, workshops, meetings, good food, beer and concerts with a big happy expo area.

BAM! is the European main event for bike travellers and bikepackers. No competitions, just different opportunities to share our passion. BAM is the end or start of bike travels for many participants. Last year we had 35 companies in the expo area and 2500 participants.
