So you want to talk about wooden walking bikes? Kevin Kelly's got a small but amazing collection of photos of Like-A-Bike-like wooden bikes from all over the world. [If you're a bike entrepreneur looking for a way to out-maneuver Target's ply bike knock-off factories, just figure out how to bring in kid-size tree bikes in from Tanzania.
But the leader of the global walking bike pack has to be Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines, north of Manila. Every three years at the Imbayah Festival, all the men in the village don traditional dress and have a 4.5-mile wooden scooter race. Flickr user Harley Palangchao has some great photos of it [including the one above].
