Brought to you by Rock the Bike, the Bicycle Music Festival uses a 100% bike powered sound system.  It’s a rolling concert, with multiple stops and rolling performances as everyone rides between locations.  The performances are powered by a 2000-watt PA system hooked up to bicycle generators.  People just take turn pedalin’ to keep the tunes a comin’.  Even the stage is transported between venues by bike, tucked into a critical mass of riders going from venue to venue.
