Bamboo bikes to teach kids to balance, plus go green from a young age

Sure, we’ve seen bamboo bikes before way back when in 2011, but these ones by GreenChamp Bikes rock harder. Why? These beginners’ balance bikes for young kids aged 3-5 look so darn cute, they are definitely a great way to incorporate eco-consciousness in these little rascals, never mind the lack of pedals.

The eco-friendly ride was conceived by cycling pals Daniel Heerkens and Sunny Chuah, who use just the top 0.01% bamboo sourced directly from local Chinese villagers in Guangzhou as raw material for the bikes. Much respect to these guys.
