Make sure not to "pass" on Passau, Germany!

CelloJoe and Kelly got to Passau a couple days before the rest of the group as they traveled along the Inn river bicycle path. Kelly had dislocated her shoulder while stretching with Joey, so they took a train to Passau from Bad Aibling. Joey got right to work the morning after they arrived by going to the Rathaus (city hall) and speaking with Rita Loher-Bronold from the Kultur Department about the city sponsoring a show. What a great decision to simply ask for help...the city hooked the Pleasant Revolution UP!

They gave us permits to play right in the heart of the town at two locations, provided us with a sumptuous meal at a traditional Bavarian restaurant, and put up our entire crew (17 people!) with hotel accommodations at a cyclists hotel called the Rotel Inn.

Some of the group went to see the largest organ in the world in the main cathedral of Passau. It has almost 18,000 pipes! It was amazing and sounded like alien music sometimes.

Local Bike Activists Bernd Sluka and Boris Burket helped with the organizing and were able to get our show announced on the radio and in the Passau Neue Press paper. And all of this happened in two days!
