A bamboo-bike message from Brazil

Last week, we recieved a little thank-you note from Ricardo Martins, from TheBambooTrip.com.

In 2018, the Dutch Cyling Embassy made a small donation to the bamboo bike project that Ricardo was involved in. He was proud to be able to update us:

"We just finished the first workshop to produce bamboo bicycles for the local community! There were thirty participants there, who could join the workshop for free. We have already made seven bicycles! We are structurizing the project little by little, in order to produce more bikes, so they can be sold or used for our local bike share system."

Great work by Ricardo and his team. They are working on getting the funds together to attend the Velo-city 2019 convention in Dublin, to be able to represent the project there as well. Hope to see you there!
