Would You Ride a Wooden Bike?

While most of us might be interested in carbon frames, there are others out there who want something a little simpler. Enter the Splinter Bike, a bike made entirely out of wood, without a single piece of rubber or metal.

As if building an entirely wooden bike wasn’t enough, the team behind the Splinter Bike is attempting to set the Wooden Bike Land Speed Record — and by “set” we mean “create,” since such a feat has never been attempted before.

Pretty cool if you ask us.

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!
