If you are a cyclist in Egypt, then you know how difficult it is find a good mechanic to perform even the most basic of repairs. Hoping to make maintaining your bike easier is none other Ain Bicycle, who has launched a crowd funding campaign to build a community centre for cyclists.

Community centre for cyclists are often found in societies where cycling is popular. They are community hubs equipped with all the necessary tools for fixing almost any bicycle problem. A welcoming collective workshop where anyone can learn or teach others how to DIY their own bicycle maintenance and repairs. Although these centres exist abroad we are yet to hear of any in Cairo, which is why we we’re elated to hear that Ain Bicycles has launched a crowd-funding campaign in hopes of establishing a similarly resourceful space in Cairo.

Envisioning more than just a bicycle repair center, Ain Bicycle hopes that the space will be used to think of new and creative strategies to challenge the dominance of cars on Egyptian roads. As it stands there are way too many misconceptions about cycling in Egypt. Many consider cycling in Cairo impossible, but not only is it possible, it’s on the rise as many are looking for an efficient alternative and environmentally responsible way of commuting.

To sweeten the deal Ain Bicycle are offering a variety of swag in exchange for you contribution. The more you give the more you get, and considering that Ain Bicycles have been assembling bicycles right here in Cairo for the past two years, makes them the perfect candidates to establish this much needed resourceful centre.
