Would you ride a bamboo bike to and from work?

Do you use a bike to get around? I’d love to travel to Ghana to spend time with the amazing entrepreneur who started this small business. I would check out the factory where the bikes are made and dig deeper into the impact these bikes might be having on the community. The scientist in me wants to conduct a small study on the difference bicycles are making for the community members who now have one. Who is buying these bikes? Where are they using them to go to and from? What did they use to get back and forth previously? What types of places are they able to go now that may have been previously inaccessible? Is this the first bike they’ve owned? What other methods of transportation do they own? What about bicycle maintenance? So many questions! I love when sustainability meets private enterprise and furthers the development of the community. hope to come across more of these types of projects to better understand just how more businesses can thrive while investing in the human capital potential in the community.

 

[inquire] What kinds of questions might you have?
