Wooden bicycle

By Lucia September 20, 2010

I didn’t expect to find this on my way back from dropping off Clover’s laundry. Look, that’s a bicycle, but it’s made entirely from wood.

The guy standing on the left is Gwynn, one of our regulars. He’s teaching a class, and their first assignment is to build a bicycle. The only catch is it can’t be made of any bicycle parts.

They handed me a helmet and I rode the wooden bicycle. It took me a few tries to get started, but once I got the hang of pedaling up and down instead of around (there’s no chain), I did pretty well. The funny thing is, I hadn’t ridden any bike since July when I got hurt. Thanks, guys, for the ride : )
