BICYCLE TRAILER CAMP BED
Many folk asked us for Bamboo Trailer plans for this years Burning Man. This is a photo of one Bamboo Bicycle Trailer that ended up as a camp bed.

Its basically a bamboo trailer that has been stretched longer, and then an A frame has been built over the load bed to create a tent with funky fabric.






This is Greg, the guy who built it.

Burning man
is an annual art festival and temporary community based on radical self expression and self-reliance in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.














You can see more photos of the trailer at the burning man here: http://flickr.com/photos/gregveen/sets/72157594270923268/

Hi, I'm with a national children's charity. We do workshops about the environment, peace & co-operation. We want to buy & adapt a biketrailer for an educational project on renewable energy using solar&pedal-power for 12v batteries&appliances. I would really appreciate any help or info. Thanks, Karl, 21

Along the lines of bamboo as an appropriate material for bicycling accessories (light, strong, renewable), I make bamboo panniers that fit the common grocery bag. My record to date is $119 worth of groceries. Check it out at:

This is good stuff. I am going to build one myself to help move bigger stuff around. I'm pretty un-petroleum so I ride a bike whenever I can.

Wonderful blog and wonderful articles! I know of a great website which promotes suntouch floor warming mats. These mats offers many advantages, including cleaner air, quieter operation and possibly even significant savings over your traditional heating system.
