DRC365 #13

  

Chukudu, Chikudu, Cbokoudou, Tshukudu. This amazing bike is a Goma invention and unique to eastern DRC. Designed as an all-terrain form of transportation this bike can carry up to one ton of material whilst negotiating the rocky lava-covered streets. Primarily a push-bike it moves slowly unless descending a hill – at which point it becomes a fast-moving freight train! #Goma #chukudu
