Bamboo bike quite the offshoot
"It's a great bike."
- Ken Runyan, triathlete/bamboo-biker
Santa Cruz, California, USA - Funny where an idea will take you. Ten years ago, Luna the dog -- part pit bull and part Labrador retriever -- was gnawing on a piece of bamboo growing behind Craig Calfee's bicycle shop outside Santa Cruz.
On Sunday, Calfee was due to arrive in the West African nation of Ghana, intent on making bamboo bikes for the desperately poor.
