An Afghan boy pushed a bicycle for his brother in Kabul, Afghanistan on Wednesday. Cycling is growing in popularity in Afghanistan despite harsh conditions at times and a lack of parts or supplies to make repairs. The Afghanistan Cycling Federation, which started as a three person team, has grown to more than 40 men and women that train three times a week in Kabul. A relief organization, Afghan Amputee Bicyclists for Rehabilitation and Recreation, created in 1995 promotes cycling as a means of mobility, income and survival for those who have been victims of mine accidents.
