BAM!, the Bicycle Adventure Meeting, is the largest meeting in Europe dedicated to bicycle travellers. Bikepacking, classic cycle tourism, long journeys, gravel, exploration by bicycle, ultracycling and family trips: all the souls of traveling on two wheels meet every year at BAM!.

Thousands of bicycle travelers under the same sky, that of Mantua: from 9 to 11 June 2023, in front of the suggestive lakes of the city, BAM! returns, the largest European gathering of cycle travellers.

For BAM! it will be the ninth edition, always with a formula that is as simple as it is engaging: starting from home by bicycle to all arrive in the same place, sharing roads, stories, passions and above all the desire to go far, one km after another.

What happens during BAM? meetings, music, workshops, bike rides: from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon the program follows two lines. For those who want to participate, the days are full of workshops, meetings with travelers, artists, companies and all those who have a travel story to share; for those who want to experience BAM! with a more relaxed spirit, music, a beer, the possibility of exploring the area or simply enjoying the beauty of the place are never missing.
