Bikes are beautiful. Without doubt, our favorite childhood memory is the day we could finally pedal forward without anyone’s help. The joy and sense of freedom that the bike provides is simply irreplaceable.
Afghanistan is beautiful too. That, unfortunately, is a much lesser known fact. Images of conflict and destitution that the media constantly feeds us have overshadowed Afghanistan’s spectacular landscape and enormous mountains. These mountains can be the best playing ground for bikes.
Our mission at MTB Afghanistan is to empower Afghan youth with the joy of riding and competing on mountain bikes, as well as to connect people across borders and cultures through their shared love of the outdoors and the sport of biking.
