Bucknell University & Cycle Connect
Bucknell University is where our journey began and the University has continued to be a source of growth for Cycle Connect.
Born at Bucknell
Cycle Connect was born out of a college dorm room at Bucknell University in 2008, spearheaded by Muyambi ('12), a Ugandan student. He began Cycle Connect as a student organization dedicated to raising awareness about the power of bicycles in rural areas, which he first-hand experienced growing up in Uganda. He partnered with Molly Burke ('10) to grow the student club to an organization operating on the ground in Ugandan. Twelve years since those University days, Cycle Connect has equipped over 7,500 rural families with transformational tools.
