Program

BAM! is back, the European meeting of bike travelers.

In Venice, at Rocca di Noale, from the 19th to the 21st of MAY, the third edition of the European Bicycle Adventure Meeting, the appointment for who travels by bike and for those who ride to go far.

It doesn’t matter how much your bicycle weighs, if you’re going to sleep in a tent sharing a roof of stars or if you choose a more comfortable accomodation: what matters is to meet once a year and share stories and projects.

We don’t deal with performace or time: the bike is just our philosophy.
