World Bicycle Relief is an international NGO that runs large-scale, comprehensive bicycle programs for poverty relief and disaster assistance. The organisation came up with a commercial brand of bicycles called the Buffalo Bicycle to facilitate self sustainability.
World Bicycle Relief is dedicated to providing access to independence and livelihoods through the power of bicycles. After carrying out field tests on four brands of bicycle available on the Zambian market, they found that most bicycles on the market were not robust and lacked durability.
World Bicycle Relief decided to work on the weaknesses they had identified and designed a strong and durable bicycle specifically built to endure heavy loads and tough roads in Zambia. Buffalo Bicycles has been tested by the Cannondale U.S frame laboratory.
