BAM 2022 Update:

Regrettably, there will not be a BAM tour in 2022. For the past few months, the planning committee has been trying diligently to plan the event. Unfortunately, we were not able to secure host towns and the necessary logistics in time to coordinate a quality ride and experience for you. 

Now we are focusing our energy on planning a great BAM experience for you in August 2023. We look forward to you riding with us then!

If you are interested in being a part of the BAM 2023 team, please let us know. We are looking for people to join the planning committee and volunteer on the ride. Your expertise is no doubt part of the large variety of skill sets we need; there is something for everyone. We are a fun group, and we’d love to have you join us. Send us an email at if you are interested.

Registration will be open in early 2023. Check back here on the website ( for more information as the time draws closer. 

See you on the road!
