In order to test different materials and manufacturing methods, the Bamboo Bike Project (BBP) team has been working late into the night. On Wednesday, we finished the latest round of prototypes. The team wasted no time putting the bicycles to the test, taking them for a midnight ride through Manhattan, over potholes, road plates, and manhole covers.
The bicycles handled the Big Apple beautifully, and we’re confident that with a few modifications, it will do just as well on the unpaved roads of rural Ghana.
The team will get right to work on a bamboo lock.
