Thailand to Bali on Bamboo bicycle. Yes, that is what Kenny and Jamie is doing this July. I am glad to have attended their sharing session in Singapore and get to see their bamboo bicycles. In one of the featured video, they visited a playground in Krabi, built by the community using old tires. This gave an insight into their trip, where they have explored and how they participated in community activities. In a conversation with a ever high-spirit Jamie, he shared his passion of the journey and what he has achieved. Read more of their journey on their website.

Beside the fact that bamboo is completely sustainable, there many good qualities of using bamboo as pointed out by Ahsun and in their website. Read more on Ahsun website.
