Lesotho is Rolling!

We have been very fortunate to meet Tumi, an extremely motivated and enthusiastic resident of Lesotho (a small country surrounded by South Africa), who wanted to bring bicycles to his community via a Mike's Bikes Sister Shop. A lot of hard work has gone into this latest project, and here we present a series of photos that shows the progression of this amazing upstart bike store. (click the images below to expand)

Tumi's Bicycle Shop

Tumi's Bicycle Shop

We're proud to have another Sister Shop open and we feel lucky to have a dedicated guy like Tumi running the show.  With his involvement, we're confident that more people in Lesotho will have a local shop they can count on for reliable and trustworthy service, making the bicycle a truly viable mode of transportation there.
