Our vision: Sustainability, comfort and design go hand in hand
The easy way would have been to order off-the-shelf mountain, hybrid, or city bikes like other tour companies; it sure would have been easier and cheaper. But that’s not what we are about – we are passionate about our bicycles!
We weren’t searching for a gimmick to be different. We are bicycle fanatics and wanted our customers to experience the unbeatable ride quality that bamboo offers. The facts that our frames are works of art and the natural materials actually suck carbon out of the atmosphere (as opposed to producing lots of airborne carbon) are icing on the cake. Moreover, bamboo is shock absorbing and incredibly strong. For us it is the perfect material to craft our bikes. Besides, what is more appropriate than riding a bamboo bike in an area where bamboo grows so abundantly?
Bamboo Bicycle Tours has been incubated by Project Lifecycle B.V., a Dutch company focusing on producing bamboo bikes in developing countries and organize unique day-tours on selfmade bamboo bicycles locally.
Our mission is threefold:
- Creating awareness by promoting the use of durable materials and encourage people to ride a bike,
- Poverty alleviation by supporting economic growth in developing countries,
- Establishing a sustainable, profitable business model with local entrepreneurs.
