How to grow your own bike from bamboo

This video speaks largely for itself and we applaud the work.

The GhanaBambooBikes initiative is a great one and even though Bernice Dapaah’s bikes are around $40 more expensive than their steel counterparts she continues to build with bamboo as it is more ecologically sound.

In fact compared to a traditional bicycle Dappah suggests that the manufacture of a bamboo bicycle helps reduce carbon emissions by up to 70%.

They also plant ten new bamboo plants for every one that they cut down which seems like a good thing.

Would you swap one of your carbon bikes for a bamboo equivalent to help reduce pollution?

Remember whatever you ride…Just Ride…you still produce a lot less pollution than a car.

Do you think one of these bikes could replace your car.
