2:30 – 5:30 Drop in to ask questions and see how a bamboo bike is made
3:00 – 3:30 Presentation of Bamboo Bike Studio’s history and projects
Based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the Bamboo Bike Studio promotes sustainability and personal craftsmanship by providing any cyclist the experience of building his or her dream bike from scratch. While this would be a worthy goal on its own, Bamboo Bike Studio also works to advance sustainable entrepreneurship and development through financing bamboo bike factories in Africa and South America. In this Drop-In Design program, meet the founders of Bamboo Bike Studio, hear about how their business model works, and see a bamboo bicycle frame take shape over the course of the afternoon.
