The Bicycle City– Watch the Trailer

Over the last two decades, Pedals for Progress has collected used bikes from the U.S. to distribute in Nicaragua, a country with a poverty index second only to Haiti.  The bikes have gone to Rivas, a city on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, and have become an essential part of the local economy, the family routine and the culture.  Watch the trailer and check out The Bicycle City site for more on the changes the bike brought to Rivas.
