Pedals for Progress is a program started 20 years ago by founder David Schweidenback. Over the past two decades they have sent down 20,000 bicycles to the otherwise impoverished city of Rivas, Nicaragua. This amazing story is the subject matter for the upcoming documentary The Bicycle City. The film’s interviews really capture into how this access to physical mobility leads to self empowerment and the ability to improve their lives as well as the lives of their loved ones.
