Our story



Everything began two years ago when I met this little FC Chelsea fan in Vietnam. He looked desperate because he could not get his bamboo bicycle up to the hill. I gave him a helping hand and he paid me back with a smile on his face. This was my first encounter with bamboo bicycles.


We are more than just a bicycle building company, we are young enthusiasts who are passionate about bicycles and want to change the world for a better place to live.

Bamvélo as a Social Enterprise in cooperation with our NGO partner is aiming to increase job creation for extremely low-income population (50 cents a day per person) in rural areas of Vietnam and Cambodia in order to reduce hunger and acute poverty.

To reach this goal we are offering a unique, eye-catching, eco-friendly and social responsible bicycle from iron bamboo (known as the strongest and the lightest bamboo species in the world) for a fair price. Each sold bicycle is directly linked to one of the social projects managed by our NGO partner. If you want to know more about our project or support us in realisation of our goal (monetary or non-monetary), please, contact me directly at: yderevianko@bamvelo.com

Our range includes single speed commuters for kids, women and men.

All our bamboo frames are handcrafted in Vietnam. Complete bicycles are designed and assembled in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Our Mission

We want to build a sustainable business in order to raise resources for the needs of the extremely low-income population in rural areas of Vietnam and Cambodia in the long term. We believe that all of us should work together to build a better future for everyone.
