Pedal Forward: Bamboo Bicycle

Pedal Forward is a highly affordable bicycle that has a philanthropic ripple effect. Although it’s hard to believe, bamboo is durable and lightweight, it boasts a higher shock absorbency than any other material used in manufacturing bicycles. It even weighs less than aluminum. Best of all, bamboo is cheap. A Pedal Forward bicycle rings in at $500 (four times lower than the cost of any other bamboo bicycle on the market). pedal-forward-04 The company’s initiative is mostly borne from its desire to provide a sustainable and eco-friendly mode of transportation.
