Maya Pedal Association

We’ve posted about how we think bicycles can help change the world, every now and then we are forwarded cool links that prove our point. This is no exception, and we are extremely inspired by it.


The Maya Pedal Association takes broken down bicycles and turns them into pedal-powered machines called bicimaquinas. These hand built wonders include a water pump, corn thresher, coffee depulped and so many more.

One of the best parts is that they also create and upload build instructions for some of these devices. Now anyone can go out and create the bicimaquina of their dreams with knowledge and inspiration from the Maya Pedal Association… Let’s get to building!
