After a few weeks of preliminary research in Delft we are ready for our first visit to Kisumu Town in Kenya. This Sunday we’ll be flighing to Nairobi, and from there we’ll hop on a bus for a 6 hour drive to our final destination. Once we arrive we can finally get in contact with the people this whole project evolves around, the small bicycle entrepreneurs in this region. We will talk with a lot of them, visit their homes, join them for a day at their work, discuss possible bicycle improvements and maybe even design a couple of bikes with them.
During our stay in Kisumu we’ll be posting pictures and updates regularly. So be sure to visit here every couple of days.
Greetings from the African Bicycle Design Team
