Did you know?

We have Matteo from Italy coming to help make his bamboo frame to ride from Lusaka to London, over 12,000 kms.

Another thing…did you know each Bamboo bike takes over 4 months to make? We cut the bamboo in a day, soak it in solution for 2 days. We dry the bamboo for 2-3 months to ensure excess moisture content is out of it. It then takes 40-50 hours to glue, sand, wrap and paint. Because of your support and purchases we are able to employ over 15 people making bamboo frames! When unemployment is over 50% like it is in Zambia, that is a HUGE deal!
