BAMBOO BIKE SOCIAL ENTERPRISE UPDATE - June 2018
We continue building our bamboo bikes in our ‘temporary‘ Tianyar workshop as the Mount Agung volcano keeps us concerned, with higher levels of activity in the past few days, including small eruption on 29th May, with gas and ash columns rising 500 metres above the crater.
Please see our many exciting developments of the last 3 months and some great opportunities going forward, below.
Promoting our bamboo bikes in Jakarta and Sanur
INABIKE 2018, 22-24 March: As outlined in our last report, Deni Nugraha (bamboo bike designer), Karina (EBPP health team leader and a competitive cyclist) and I took two MTB’s (m & f) and a City bike (we took free of charge on our Garuda flight!), all with beautiful laminated bamboo mudguards to the INABIKE Jakarta International Bike Exhibition, generating a lot of interest, many complements from the international visitors and - one order for a custom MTB frame! The buyer, an Indonesian professor and cycling enthusiast from Bandung, detailed the modifications he needed and shortly after taking delivery sent some great photos of his first tour in the northern Bandung mountains, with the great complement “Nice handling, good product”.
