The Inaugural Umpteenth Quasi-Annual Yuba River Bicycle Music Festival will bring all the traditional BMF elements together:
- A Human-Powered PA System
- Bicycle Motility of the Entire Festival
- Pilgrimage-Style Sequential Venue Schedule
- A Live on Bike Mobile Stage
We will be beginning in Condon Park, Grass Valley, for the first portion of the festival, where several bands will play, and we hope to have some bike demos, a raffle, and representation by various bicycle interests in the community (e.g. bike shops, outdoor gear stores, also conservation organizations and groups like Bicyclists of Nevada County).
We’ll then pack up the whole shebang and ride up a very scenic route to Nevada City:
Once there, we will use Commercial Street as the final venue for more local and bike-centric music acts. Closing off Commercial Street gives us the heightened visibility optimal to spread the message of Peace, Love, Bikes and Music, and allow for participation from folks who weren’t able to ride from Grass Valley to come experience the magic.
