Bici-Tec 2015 class registration is now open!

Hey everyone, if you don't know, Bici-tec is the latest project of Carlos Marroquin (formerly of Maya Pedal). They do amazing work in Guatemala and have just started taking applications for their 2015 program. Highly recommended, Carlos is an amazing teacher. Here's more from them:

The Bici-Tec School of Appropriate Bici-Technology in San AndrĂ©s Itzapa, Guatemala is now accepting applications for the first session of our training program in 2015, which will run from February 2nd to April 3rd 2015. Join us to learn how to build bicycle machines and grow the movement of appropriate bici-technology!

This program offers training in the design, fabrication and installation of bicycle machines, such as bicycle-powered corn grinders and water pumps. These bicycle machines are an affordable and environmentally sustainable technology that increases rural productivity and furthers rural development. The economic opportunities offered by bicycle technology can lead to the autonomy and empowerment of rural and indigenous families and communities worldwide.

This is a hands-on learning experience facilitated by Bici-Tec founder Carlos Marroquin, a world leader in pedal-powered technology. Carlos comes to the program with over fifteen years experience in design, construction and implementation of bici-technology. International and Guatemalan students will study side by side in this hands-on program. We are now accepting applications through December 1st for this exciting program!

If you’re interested in attending the Bici-Tec School of Appropriate Bici-Technology at a different time, stay tuned for more information about our Summer 2015 session!
