Bike Repair Station on the Saharra

On February 3, in the city M’hamid (8,000 inhabitants) – known as the “gateway to the Sahara”, in the Moroccan province of Zagora, we have installed the self-service bicycle repair station IBOMBO PRS-SV1 on the main road. The entire logistics of the project took a pair of extreme cyclist (United – Cyclists) on itself. The station traveled with them to target more than 5,000 km (by airplane and Jeep).

The idea of ??the assembly arose during their slide show in Poznan and Leszno, where Sophie and Jack talked about their “total bike expeditions” to the Himalaya and Sahara. After the presentation, an initiative of sending toy animals, sporting balls, etc. to children in Morocco, has been born.

We were very surprised, that in this part of the world, the bike is the most popular means of transport and we have decided, to send an IBOMBO station with a number of spare parts there. The system will help in case of errors – not only local people but also cyclists, bicycle adventurers, drivers, bikers and children by inflating balls.
