How bikes can help put an end to HIV/AIDs


World Bicycle Relief is a nifty campaign by SRAM and Trek that is in the process of distributing bikes in Africa, to the tune of about 400 bikes per week. They're opening a second headquarters, and training 400 field mechanics. The idea is to provide more than 20,000 bikes to health care volunteers and professionals in especially impoverished countries like Zambia.

"Simple, sustainable mobility in the form of bicycles is an essential tool in the fight against HIV/AIDS," said [World Bicycle Relief president F.K. Day]. "There is a strong link between disease and poverty -- bicycles are a way to break that link by providing access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities." The bikes themselves, which cost $109 each, are purpose-built and culturally appropriate.


It's such a great program that we don't want to joke about what might be a "culturally appropriate" bike. But probably recumbents, folding bikes, and tall bikes lack the, uh, seriousness required for the job.
