What is Bluegrass By Bike (BBB) all about?

Bluegrass By Bike is a way to attend Planet Bluegrass festivals by a completely carbon-neutral mode of transportation. Our team of bikers can avoid all carbon emissions by peddling ourselves through the Rocky Mountains. Our plan is to leave from Boulder in late May, allowing three weeks to get to Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and then make our way back to Lyons in time for Rockygrass.

First and foremost, BBB is about experiencing the beauty of the Rockies by mountain biking to the best folk and bluegrass festivals in the western United States! But this is also about embodying the Planet Bluegrass philosophy of a “Greener Bluegrass Festival.” Instead of buying renewable energy credits, we will be our own source of renewable energy!

We encourage anyone that is interested in BBB to get involved! Are you going to any of these festivals? How will you be traveling to the festivals? Have you thought about ways to reduce your automobile miles in your commute to the festivals?

Let us know if you have any questions, thoughts, or comments about BBB. You can post on our Blog, or feel free to email us at BluegrassByBike@gmail.com.
