The home of Dino

Yep, a bamboo bike…

Spotted this beauty in London’s swanky West End last night. It’s a bike made from bamboo. Sweet!

I’d seen them on the TV a few months back being made in Ghana. It was Boomers International in Ghana (http://www.booomers.com). Their ultimate goal is to provide the poor in rural Ghana the means to gain economic freedom. Definitely worth a look!

Want to have a go yourself? Fear not, you can make your own bike right here in Blighty. Check out the Bamboo Bicycle Club (http://bamboobicycleclub.org) and book yourself into a workshop.

Or buy a kit off the internet from Bamboo Bee for £120: http://bamboobee.net/product/biy-bamboo-bike-frame-kit/

Don’t fancy making one yourself? There seem to be plenty of pre-made options.
