Two-Wheeled Coasters

Whether you're quenching your thirst after a great ride or putting your feet up and watching the Tour de France on TV, this coaster set is a handy beverage companion. Graham Bergh crafts these road-worthy coasters from reclaimed bike chain and bamboo with protective cork bottoms. Each one features the image of a different bike—mountain, cruiser, ten-speed, and tandem—for a functional survey of favorite two-wheeled types. Each month, Graham's workshop collects 3,000 pounds of used bike parts, drawing from 150 shops in 17 states. The parts that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children, but the rest are transformed into coasters, bottle openers, and other functional designs by Graham's talented team of craftsmen. Handmade in Mosier, Oregon.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“We envision a sustainable future where consumers are conscious of the origin of the food they eat, the energy they consume, and the products they buy.”

In 1991, Graham Bergh was riding his bike to his recycling job when he got a flat. Being a savvy recycler, he took the inner tube and made a cradle for his stereo speakers. Three years later, he started his own company focusing on reviving and refashioning spent bike gear.

Every year, Graham and his team of bicycle craftspeople collect thousands of pounds of used parts, drawing from bike shops nationwide. The pieces that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children, and the ones that are beyond repair are made into edgy home accents and accessories.

"We envision a sustainable future where commerce flourishes in a world powered by renewable energy, and where consumers are conscious of the origin of the food they eat, the energy they consume, and the products they buy," says Graham.

I'm always looking fr unique gifts for friends and family and when I saw these coasters I knew who would be receiving them this year.

My neighbors of over 20 years love cycling and they are going to love these and made out of recycled bike chain is an added bonus.

Can't wait to see their reaction.

      I use these as a decoration on my end tables. I prefer to not actually put any beverages on them, because I do not want the cork to get stained or discolored.

              I lived the variety of surface designs. The recipient of the coasters remarked how well made they were and how coolio was to be accented by the bike chain edging. I would buy more if I encounter another born enthusiast!
