151,771 total units shipped.
On May 21, 2016, the Mountainside New Jersey Rotary Club hosted the first ever stand-alone collection of sewing machines for Sewing Peace. We collected 38 sewing machines in total!
On 9 July 2016 we loaded our 57th container for Rivas, Nicaragua, where we have sent more than 25,000 bikes since 1991. For the country as a whole, we've sent more than 42,000 bikes to Nicaragua, by far the most we've sent to a partner country.
Every year, affluent Americans buy 18 million new bicycles and discard millions of old ones, abandoning many more unused in basements, sheds, and garages. Most of these end up in our already overburdened landfills. Meanwhile, poor people overseas need cheap, non-polluting transportation to get to jobs, markets, customers, and schools.
Pedals for Progress has received, processed and donated over 147,000 bicycles, 3,300 used sewing machines, and $10.8 million in new spare parts to partner charities in 38 developing countries. Pedals for Progress isn't just donating used bicycles: It's also helping developing world economies by promoting self-sustaining bicycle repair businesses.
