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!
