The BAM! Spotify channel is launched here.
We add footprints, listen to memories, hum on the saddle…. With the wind in our faces.
And we ride toward BAM! 2023.

Why I make bad choices and why bad choices bring good stories..
We ran away from home many times, sometimes too soon,
sometimes so quietly that no one noticed.
Sometimes, however, we didn’t have the courage to go,
paralyzed by someone throwing a slipper at the door.
🫀 We are a bit of a punk. Even in being scared. 🫀
We leave a steady job and follow a shifting horizon.
We don’t ask for loans; we settle for a home that fits inside a backpack.
We love to subtract: fewer wheels, less competition, fewer demands.
We take months, years to see the world, knowing we will never see it all.
Because we take it slow, stop for a drink, and borrow a garden for the night.
And so life happens to us.
We make different choices, we take wrong paths, we keep upside-down maps… not everyone likes us, but others may or may not like us anyway, not because of the way we are, but because of the way they are.And in the end we always have a story to tell.
A good story.
Our bike is a small thing that doesn’t make noise, doesn’t crackle.
It doesn’t kill. It never runs too fast.
It is in the intention of the gesture, the value. Not in its magnitude.
So get your ass on the saddle and let it be whatever it is.
What if I make a mistake? What if I regret it later?
👩🌾 🧑🌾 👨🌾
Tell us about your bad choice.
It’s a good story because it’s not perfect.
So, have you already thought what route to take to get there?
Call a friend and share the way.
We’re coming back.
BAM! 2023, Mantua, June 9 to 11.
YOUR TENT PLACE
The night, the stars, the beer, maybe a few gin and tonics,
the tired body, the music in your ears, the miles in your legs.
And then the sun that rises and it starts getting warm, a greeting to the day mirrored in the water of the lake (give me a coffee) and calls us back to the road.
BAM! is also this thing here,
it’s a point suspended between memory and desire, in our home under the stars.
The one we carry on our shoulders and on two wheels, around the neighborhood or around the world.
KONA CAMP AREA
They support freedom and sympathize with bicycle empowerment-who would be better than them to take charge of our night on the lake?
The guys from Kona return to welcome you to one of the most scenic skylines ever: Mantua.
…The stars more than the moon.
