Day 2 of building our cargo bicycle. Here, are more pictures to see what we were up to. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram!
The first day of our building phase has finally commenced, and our team has been incredibly excited to get this running.
We decided to build our cargo bicycle at The Bamboo Bicycle Club workshop, near Bow Road. The building phase will run approximately for 4 to 5 days with the help from James and Emanuele (Thank you so much guys!). As our bamboo had already been delivered to James’s workshop, our next step is then to inspect and identify which bamboo will be used and where. This was a vital step, as any mis-calculation could cause further delay in installing our components. We then measured and shaped the chosen bamboos based on our design. The team also constructed the jig for the rear section of the cargo bicycle.
Two of our members, Safiyyah and Avinash, along with James Marr, made a trip down south to pick up some bamboos for our cargo bicycle. A big shout out to UKBamboo, UK’s largest bamboo supplier, for helping us out on this project!
