May Transition Living – build a bike trailer

The plan for the Transition Living workshop in May is to build a bike trailer for the Abundance group.

We’ve got some plans from a chap who’s designed trailers to be made out of bamboo for developing countries, check out this webpage for his full story www.carryfreedom.com/bamboo, its a nice story! He gives the plans to anyone who asks as long as they send him photos of the finished product being used for his website, so bring your bike along, take the trailer for a spin and we’ll get some good pics.

Bamboo is all well and good in some parts of the world, but we’re not keen on it growing in Cumbria, especially when historically this area has had huge amounts of native coppice woodland. So we’re gonna make our bike trailer out of locally coppiced wood and recycled materials.

Everyone is welcome to come along to the URC hall on Tuesday 11th May, 7pm-9pm, £3. Please book your place by emailing tsl.abundance[at]gmail.com or call 01539 822165.
