I came across two interesting characters making bicycles using bamboo frames and I share both with my readers.
The first one is from Ghana and this article will give you all the information on the contraption.
The next one is an Indian and you can see his story in this youtube clip.

Nor does it me.
yep, I’ve seen a number of innovative ideas lately… many countries are doing their darnest to recycle or utilise other materials – and to provide empolyment etc…
True. Among them, the used plastic bags for road construction offers great scope.
a long as they catch the plastic bag before it leaves on a sea voyage…
Reminds me that back in the 1940’s I had a scooter which my dad (he was a carpenter) made out of an old orange box and what I can only describe as bits of ‘fire wood’. .. 🙂
We call that jugaad here John.
And those Bamboo bikes look gorgeous too. Very refined details. I love it when human beings get creative and their creativity is one of things I love the most about our brothers and sisters. Your post shows something very beautiful too: worlds apart, different backgrounds, yet brilliant minds remain the same. This post is a true ode to human beauty :).
