Lauren and Rui dreamed up Mozambikes while on a road trip throughout Mozambique. They were struck with the unavailability of quality bicycles and challenges to accessing a bicycle at all. They had both moved to Mozambique in 2008 on short term projects, only to fall in love with the country and its people. When they devised the model for Mozambikes, they knew they had a powerful model for change and threw themselves into the challenge of building a business, mass distributing quality bicycles and fighting poverty.
