How the Bicycle Brought a War-Torn City New Life.

After his Peace Corps stint in Ecuador, where only his landlord had a bicycle, David Schweidenback had the novel idea to send used American bicycles to developing world towns as economic development aid. He created Pedals for Progress in 1991, and started shipping bikes to the Nicaraguan city of Rivas, where, with local help, the simple bicycle has impacted this developing, war-ravaged town.
