Bike for aid workers

Every year, young adults go South on international cooperation internships. CycloNord-Sud makes used bikes available to them for their time away and after, local residents receive a highly appreciated gift! Travelers not associated with a solidarity group can also participate in the bike travel program.

// To obtain a bike, you must:

  • provide proof of air travel;
  • commit to giving the bike to someone in the South who will benefit from it, take a photo of the recipient and complete a short form (available in three languages);
  • provide a $30 deposit.

Guidelines vary among airlines and various conditions apply. Be sure to have all the details before you leave.

« I am very grateful for the bike, an efficient non-polluting means of transportation and most importantly, for making a Cuban happy. Our cook Joaquim had this big smile which moved us all at the bike donation ceremony. He was a close friend from the beginning of my stay and he had no idea he would inherit my bike.

In general, Cubans cannot afford a bike, much less a car. They must wait for public transportation for hours, or walk. I am glad to have improved the quality of life of Joaquim and his family. »
