A wooden bicycle is a bicycle constructed either mostly, or entirely from wood. Wood was the material used in the earliest bicycles, and is also used by modern builders, especially for balance bicycles for children. The wood can be either solid or laminate.
Recent technological advances in adhesives and fabrication have made wood a feasible choice in the modern cycle world.
