This year marks the 6th annual San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival, where all amplification for the music is Pedal Powered, literally. The audience generates electricity for the sound system by pedaling bicycles. Every material aspect of the Festival sound equipment, instruments, gear, personnel, musicians, and fans is transported by bicycle. The promotional video of the Rock the Bike movement (the folks behind the festival) is called ‘The Pleasant Revolution’, and it’s powerful and inspirational, with beautiful original music. It will have you wanting to do more bike riding!
