Bicicletas por la Paz is a band and performance collective of musicians, cyclists, puppeteers, visual artists and environmentalists, mobilizing for climate justice. The collective has made the choice to minimize their dependence on fossil fuels and use their bicycles not only as their transportation, but also as a tool to power their concerts. The band performs the majority of their shows on their pedal powered sound system. A sound system which harnesses the energy created in real time by the audience riding bicycles, to power their stage. They carry 100% of their equipment on bicycles spreading the message of peace and health through performance.
This Latin Circus Funk band, performs locally in their hometown of Oakland, CA and the greater Bay Area. They also put on an annual bike tour around the Americas, teaming with local community organizations and local businesses to put on pedal powered festivals.
They aim to empower and encourage individuals of all ages to get on their bikes and pedal the bicycle revolution into a future of thriving communities independent of fossil fuels. They believe the bike revolution has the ability to inspire individuals to embody change in todays world.
