Bamboo Bike Tours is the first company in Europe that offers guided tours with bicycles made out of bamboo.
By discovering the city on our bamboo bikes you actively contribute to ecological awareness and fair trade, our two main values. At Bamboo Bike Tours we also ensure that each bicycle has been manufactured in decent working conditions. 10% of our benefits are dedicated to promote social projects for young people in poor districts of Barcelona.
Bamboo is a very light, strong and at the same time flexible type of wood, which works as a natural buffer helping to reduce vibrations and providing a smooth pedal and cycling feeling. It is also a very fast-growing plant which helps to avoid deforestation. The production of one of our bamboo bikes only takes about 10 % of the energy and resources that are required to fabricate a bike made of conventional materials.
We offer the possibility to adapt the tour to your wishes including places you have not seen yet.
Bamboo Bike Tours is a new way of enjoying tourism responsibly and in accordance with our planet and fair trade principles. Our tours are a unique and exclusive experience of cycling while discovering one of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean.
This model is our classic. Designed, developed and manufactured in Rosario, Argentina. We work directly with our longtime provider, without any intermediaries.
The bamboo frame, handlebar and fork are 100% handmade by our partners overseas. Once we receive the parts in Barcelona the bike is assembled and equipped with high-quality components (Brooks, Shimano, Schwalbe, Michelin, Ritchey, BLB ...).
This model is the ideal bike to move around the city or cruise in the park. Thanks to its ergonomic design you are seated in an upright position, perfect to enjoy the landscape around you. This is where it got its name from, 'Buena Vista' (Nice View) - comfort par excellence!
This bamboo bike model was designed and developed in Barcelona. It is named after its creator, Octavi, a local bike professional, down-hill competition cyclist and above all - a real bicycle lover. The bike is equipped with high-quality components (Brooks, Shimano, Schwalbe, Michelin, Ritchey, BLB ...).
The Octavi model combines the geometry of a racing bicycle with the style of a mountain bike in order to meet the criteria of an urban sports bike.
Light and handy, its reactive framework makes it the perfect bicycle for everyday use.
