Welcome to the Bamboo Bicycle Club

At the Bamboo Bicycle Club, we empower people to build their own bikes. Founded in London, we've grown into a global community that champions innovative and sustainable cycling.


A new way of riding

We believe that cycling can be more than just a mode of transportation; creating something with your own hands and then riding it offers a unique experience like no other. Building anything gives you a distinctive experience, an understanding of materials, functionality, and an appreciation for your own skills.


Bamboo a natural carbon fibre without all the pollution

We selected bamboo for bike construction because it's accessible and suitable. Like timber, bamboo is readily available and easy to craft with simple tools, making it perfect for quick, DIY bike building. It absorbs road vibrations better than other materials, offers excellent strength, and has a natural aerodynamic shape. Additionally, bamboo captures CO2 as it grows, storing carbon as you ride.


Partnering worldwide, build locally.

The majority of bicycles are not built in the countries where they are ridden or by the cyclists themselves. We champion local production crafted by those who need them most. That's why we partner with individuals and educational institutions to establish bamboo bicycle workshops around the world. Our goal is for anyone to be able to build a bicycle in their city or town using a blueprint we have developed and refined over the last 14 years. If you need assistance setting up your workshop, please get in touch.
