Bicycling Woodies

When most folks think of Woodies, in the context of a mode of transportation, they think of Wood Bodied Cars and Trucks.

This morning I found a fascinating page, about Wooden Bicycles in East Africa, with pictures, from 2000, of very crude, but effective, hand-crafted bicycles being used by villagers in Africa.

As decribed by the person behind the page, and the collection of related links on the subject, writes..."These locally-made bikes had axles, steering columns, brakes (quite necessary for controlling descents in this mountainous region), and rubber tires."

Check out Wooden Bicycles in East Africa.
