Afghan Cycles

When I saw the nice typography at the beginning I thought it might be some hipster bike shop opening up! How wrong I was (I do like hipsters) this is in fact something special. Afghanistan is still a place with deep religious beliefs and heavily scarred from the fighting. Like most places the common person doesn’t want a bloody war or extreme beliefs to define them. They just want happiness and to enjoy life. These brave ladies are doing this, this is one of two cool projects I’ve seen come out of Afghanistan to help inspire Afghan women to stand up and take their true place in society, as mans equal, like the way nature actually intended. This is just another reason women cycling needs more coverage! More info here and here. Much respect to these ladies in Afghanistan.
