First Shipment to Cycloville in Kenya


539 bikes along with tons of parts, tools and accessories are shipped to Cycloville, a network in bike shops in Nairobi, Kenya.  These bicycles, spare parts and tools will be used to build the bicycle industry in Kenya, create employment opportunities for youth and grow the movement of cyclists in Nairobi to push for infrastucture and policy changes.

Cycloville first contacted Bikes Not Bombs via Facebook in July of 2014, and the official partnership was announced in May of 2015. BNB is assisting Cycloville to stabilize the supply chain of bicycles and spare parts into Kenya, to develop a youth mechanics training program and to address issues of gender equity within Cycloville and the broader cycling community of Kenya.
