It’s not important how heavy your bike is, but where it takes you. It’s not important how much time it takes you to get there, but what you see during the trip. BAM! is the first European meeting of cycle-travelers, of all those who dream and choose a horizon, a pair of wheels and the wind on the face.
Adventure Awards Days, the international Festival of exploration and adventure, will host the first edition of BAM! and will call together all bike travelers in Europe. BAM! is an occasion to meet and share a passion, but also a stage from which to tell stories and share experiences, a time to learn something new or meet a new travel companion.
