I am Dutch and although I was born (as an expat-child) somewhere in the dark Nigerian bushes, I think I was still able to ride a bike before I could walk (like all Dutch children). A big problem in Holland though is the amount of bikes that gets stolen every year, around 1.000.000! That is is an astonishing number as the Dutch population only counts 17mln people (or bikes as every Dutch person has one).
But there is good news for the Dutch people: The Bamboo Bike (designed by Calfee)! Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth and generates more oxygen than a equivalent stand of trees. It can grow up to 100cm (!!) in a single day. That makes a lot of bikes a year! A small problem could be that bamboo doesn't grow in Europe yet. But with the Climate change that is going on, you never know what opportunities the future will bring! And with the invention of this bike it also brings an end to a discussion in India whether Bamboo is a tree or a grass: it is a bike!
