Building a bamboo bike part 6: time for a ride!

Dave's making a bike out of sticks and glue. and now he's finished it and is off to the Mendips for a test ride!...

So, it lives! After much sanding and some swears, our Dave has finally got his bamboo bike up and running. And do you know what? it looks pretty cool. 

The next thing to do is sling a leg over it, and see how it rides, and Dave headed out to the sunny Mendips to see if the bike was fit for purpose. So have a watch to see whether it stays bike-shaped...

After a test ride the only other thing for Dave to try is rock up to a race on the bamboo beauty. Watch out for that vid on Youtube later this evening. Spoiler alert: it's nowhere near as sunny.
