Bikes in Rwanda 2018

In Africa bikes are omnipresent and used for all kinds of transportation, as taxis, for carrying crops, water, construction materials etc. Taking photos, at least in Eastern Africa, is challenging as people get upset when they sight a camera in operation. With this, the only option is to take photos while moving. Below is a sample of photos from Rwanda taken in 2018.
