Product description Brand name and product description

Mozambikes sells branded bicycles that promote company brands, projects and important social messages. These bicycles are either then purchased by the branding customer to distribute to their employees, customers and communities, or Mozambikes sells the bicycles at reduced rates into rural markets. In the second channel, they offer bicycles at a standard cost across, regardless of proximity to an urban center, so that people can afford to buy the product.

In order to improve the safety and conditions for cyclists in Mozambique , they provide safety campaigns, trainings for technicins, trainings for womens’ groups, development of a bicycle lane network, and introduction of new products such as bicycle ambulances.
