“The bicycle helped to reduce the stress of walking and it has given me a lot of time for doing other necessary things,” he says. He uses the bicycle to get to school sports activities and the shops, and says he now has more time to spend studying or researching. “The best thing about the bicycle is that it is easy to maintain,” he says.
