[Video] The Bicycle City Trailer

Here’s a great trailer for a documentary (still in post-production) about how the introduction of 20,000 bicycles over 20 years has transformed the impoverished city of Rivas, Nicaragua.

What happens to an impoverished developing nation town when you flood it with 20,000 bicycles? You lift three times that number of people out of poverty. Pedals for Progress and founder David Schweidenback have been shipping used American bicycles to Rivas, Nicaragua for the last two decades and the transformation has been incredible.
