Bamboo Bikes!

The UA Outdoor Recreation office just received 8 bamboo bikes made with locally harvested bamboo. The Bike Lab in Greensboro, AL, as part of the HERO Projects, partners with Bamboo Bike Studio, based in San Francisco, CA, to produce the sustainable-oriented bikes.

The raw bamboo is harvested just down the road in Greensboro, AL then taken to the Bike Lab for processing. If you are interested in learning more about the build process, the Bike Lab offered build workshop where you can custom build your own bamboo bike in many different configurations. 

More pictures showing the build process:
