Having built a bicycle in April using black bamboo with hemp dyed with a red pigment. Tim’s been busy cycling to work everyday as well as a number of trips which included London to Brighton.

Tim recently travelled to Paris and got in touch with some great photo’s as well as a brief write up of his experience

“Hi Guys,

Just wanted to let you know that the bamboo bike made it to Paris in one piece and gave me no trouble at all (unlike my mate’s Decathalon piece of crap).  We did the trip in a leisurely five days with lots of stops for wine and food.  The ride was remarkably comfy and the three gears were plenty for getting over those puny French hills.

I’ve enclosed some photographic evidence.

Cheers,

Tim”
