Here is a visual into the new nest of Justin Ancheta and Maren Metke family in the Sierra Foothills as they get ready for their baby Joon Bug.
After 15 years in the Bay Area, Justin Ancheta has made his way up to the Sierra Foothills to raise a family and continue making music and event production with the vast musical family both in the Bay Area and the Sierra Foothills. This show is going to be extra special, featuring the local talent of Richard Jones on drums (celebrating his birthday) and Jacob Aginsky on keys, plus special guests!
The collective is ready to embark on another incredible adventure down the Washington and Oregon coast, hitting up venues by bicycle and performing Pedal Powered shows along the way. Biketopia Collective shares the good fortune of community power and positive creations. If you’d like to inquire about having them at your bike event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will field your event information to match the best offering of Pedal Powered activities and music creations.
Pedalfest coming July 28th, a Benefit for Bike East Bay at Jack London Square. Each year the Bike East Bay puts on a great event at Jack London Square to raise funds and awareness for bike advocacy in the East Bay. Through their efforts, new bike lanes are continuing to pop up all over the East Bay, increasing the safety of pedestrians and bikers.
The full line up is coming soon. For now, we have The Big Fit confirmed! More coming soon.

Rock The Bike and Soul Graffiti Productions partnered to win three first-place awards for presentation at the Maker Faire 2018. Thank you to all the volunteers, crew, and extra friends who supported the Pedal Powered activities this year. We found out that carrots DO take more energy then apples to juice; approximately double the wattage!
