Organic Athlete, the first vegan cycling team, is partnering with Calfee Design to ride, co-promote and help develop their bamboo bikes. The team's message of personal health and social change now manifests in the form of a green, renewable bicycle. The elite team, started in 2007, consists of athletes who focus their diets on whole, plant foods and eschew animal products.
Craig Calfee designs his bikes with finely mitered bamboo tubing and binds the frame together with a special hemp-finer wrap for a different kind of natural carbon fiber bike.
In addition to adopting a sustainable plan for their diets and bikes, the Organic Athlete team will also ensure all paper use and carbon emissions are offset by their 100% Replanted program.
