Refurbishing bicycles into machines

Maya Pedal is a NGO based in Guatemala that started in 1997 by a few members of a Canadian organisation called Pedal. The NGO takes donations of used bicycles from the US and Canada, which are then either reconditioned to be sold or remanufactured into “bicimaquinas” (pedal power machines). Bicimaquinas are alternatives to electric or fuel engines and have a broad range of applications such as water pumps, grinders, blenders and much more.
