If you are going South on an international cooperation internship, Cyclo Nord-Sud can provide you with a used bike for your use. At the end of your stay, you leave the bike with a local resident – a highly appreciated gift! Travelers not associated with a solidarity group can also participate in the bike travel program.

« 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. »
