Isata has much to celebrate in 2021. After saying I Do, this bride and groom threw on bike helmets and rounded up the wedding party for a slow roll through town on the way to their wedding reception.

Isata trained as a bike mechanic in 2019 and opened her own shop where she provides bikes and service in Makeni, Sierra Leone. When the pandemic unfolded last spring, Isata set up a hand sanitizing station outside her shop and began promoting bikes as a safer alternative to public transportation. She has been on a roll ever since. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Bikes for the World partners with organizations around the world to bring life changing transportation to rural communities. Now that's cause to celebrate!
