Racing in the Streets of Kigali
Let’s loosen up a little with the Rwandan Grand Prix with cameo by the Where the Hell is Matt guy.
From the Orphans of Rwanda school in Kigali, Rwanda.
One of my favorites was Bikes to Rwanda
Bikes To Rwanda’s aim is to provide cargo bicycles to co-operative coffee farmers in Rwanda. The goal is to improve quality of life in these communities through a bike workshop and maintenance program that provides transportation resources for basic needs and enhances production of quality coffee.
The need for cargo bikes was evident in the coffee growing regions (where I was) as Rwanda only has a few main roads and even side roads are often difficult. Farmers need a means to get their harvest to the highways to get picked up by trucks and to the market. A sturdy cargo bike saves an enormous amount of time and energy. The bikes are designed and developed by Project Rwanda.
