Wheels of change

These retro-looking bicycles are produced by a subsidiary of World Bicycle Relief (WBR), a cycling-focused NGO. Under the tagline ‘built for big loads on tough roads’, the bikes aim to give low-income groups in Africa the means to travel to markets, schools, healthcare facilities and more. We meet the students and smallholders riding into a brighter future.
