In the innovation center of the China Cycle exhibition in Shanghai they had some interesting bicycle designs. My favorite was this really nicely done wooden bike in the form of a 60 for the 60th year anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.
There was a conference on „Low Carbon Emission“ so Shannon and I (who co-founded STC) went to listen to their ideas.
It was actually about a bike ride from Beijing to Shenzhen called „China Tour“ to promote cycling as „Low Carbon Life“.
It is organized by the China Bicycle Association (CBA) together with the company Xidesheng (XDS). The launching event on May 16th in Beijing Chaoyang Park will be organized by a PR company.
Then a few young cyclists did a circle in the venue with the China Tour outfit.
The 12 cyclists that will ride from Beijing through China down to Shenzhen have already been selected. But Shannon and I are looking for a way to participate with STC.
I did tricks on the real bamboo trick bike today again here at the Shanghai exhibition. I uploaded a video of it that you can watch here. It was a video taken between the halls. The bamboo bike is really stable
There was bicycle art by Fang Zu Han. He does nice pencil drawings. I prefer this one.
And this is him with the head of the CBA
