Saying goodbye to the old bikes in Copenhagen

Benoit writes: We decided to catch a flight from Copenhagen to Lyon. And, instead of packing up our bikes, we decided to donate them. I wanted sell them to raise a few more bucks for the trip but people have been so generous that I felt it was our turn to return a little something to the universe. Good thing we did because we wouldn't have had the chance to ride a cargo bike through Copenhagen with the rest of our equipment. Thanks to Bryant from Baisikeli. Also, thanks to Emilie and Roy for letting us camp in their back yard and giving us large boxes to put our equipment in for the flight.

Ready to donate at Baisikeli (Swahili for bicycle), where they restore old bikes to send to Africa.

The cargo bike that Baisikeli lent us to get to the metro with our boxes.
