Sustainable Bike Tours?

A friend of mine, Ivan, sent me a link to an extraordinary story about a bike made from bamboo.  Or rather, I should say a story about an extraordinary bike, made from bamboo.

Have a look at this article in a Guardian blog, by Matthew Sparkes.

Craig Calfee's bamboo bike

Most of the comments related to its price of £3,000. If you want to have a look at what else Calfee Design do, here’s their website.

How long until we’re using bamboo bikes in France and Italy on our bike tours? Goodness knows, but I doubt I’ll live to see it (and certainly not at £3,000 a pop!) Good luck to Craig, though.
