Bicycles are a common mode of transport in Mozambique. In Zambezia Province for example, bicycles form 37% of the urban transport, meaning that there are more bicycles than cars. However, bicycles are not just a form of transport, they provide millions of Mozambicans in rural areas with access to healthcare, clean water, jobs and education. They also relieve the people of the burden of paying for public transport, which is expensive and ever rising.
On average, school-going children living in Zavala District in Inhambane Province walk an average of 8 km to school and back. According to 13 students from Mahamba, Quissíco and Domingos Fondo secondary schools, every day, each of them walks 6 to 8 kms to school and an equivalent back home in the evening.
