The Young Cyclist: A Rwandan road rider
An Africa Direct Documentary.
Aliane Mugisha was a roadside hawker in Kigali when she decided to change her business, inspired by the local men who rode taxi bicycles. She did not know this would lead to a whole new cycling adventure. In The Young Cyclist, by filmmaker Yuhi Amuli, she shares her story of determination and focus – and its uplifting results.
