In the late 1990’s when Nicaragua was recovering from a war that had left the country broken and impoverished, they reached out to the world for help. Pedals for Progress and founder David Schweidenback heard their call and responded by providing more than 20,000 bicycles over the last two decades. Through this single effort he has lifted more than three times that number from the depths of poverty. This video is truly inspiring. More information can be found here at The Bicycle City.
