Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Unicycle
The Unicycle project is a bike share program that provides bicycles for stress-free, environmentally friendly commute for Nigerian campuses and potentially Africa. However, due to the low adoption rate of the bicycle as a means of transport in Nigeria, the Unicycle project also aims to sensitize students about the health and environmental benefits of bicycling and by doing so, create a bicycling culture that helps boost adoption in Nigeria
