I know there are initiatives like World Bicycle Relief and Bikes Without Borders in Africa, but what else is being done in relation to cycling in Africa?

Aren't there any local initiatives to make people bike, local bicycle brands, etc.?

    I need the regional tag is deprecated, but I couldn't add a tag like Africa because I'm new here. – Mads Oct 30 '15 at 1:35

    You realise Africa is a continent, and it's bigger than the Americas combined? There's everything from the ludicrously white and rich diamond industry in South Africa to the US-backed dictatorship of Egypt to the 'everyone's having a war' of the Democratic Republic of Congo. – Móż Oct 30 '15 at 1:59

    Our local bike co-op has helped fill a shipping container of MTBs for Mozambique. Probably 400-500 bikes in there plus a bunch of spares and tools. – Criggie Oct 30 '15 at 2:20
  • This group collects bikes in Australia and NZ and sends them to Namibia and Zambia bicyclesforhumanity.com – Kim Ryan Oct 30 '15 at 4:14
  • Do realized Africa is a continent etc., but I'm still looking for bike initiatives from everywhere in Africa. – Mads Oct 30 '15 at 20:20

    That's exactly the kind of initiatives I'm looking for. – Mads Oct 30 '15 at 22:09
