Wood War Bike

Photos like these of wood bikes in war-torn Africa, get my attention every time and remind me to be thankful for what we’ve got. At Interbike, I’ve seen Tom Ritchey with one of these bikes next to his Project Rwanda bike. This ain’t wood as a retro-fashion statement, it’s a material used out of necessity and ingenuity. We’ll give bikes to Africa again this year and hopefully help someone.
