WAY TO GO

Friday - - Travel -

An in­no­va­tive bike-shar­ing scheme was launched in Mar­rakech in time for last year’s Cop22. Me­d­ina Bike (med­in­abike.ma), run by charm­ing Lebna Al Hakym, is Africa’s first bike­shar­ing scheme. An ideal way to see the city and its lovely sights, tourists (and lo­cals) can pick up a bike in one sta­tion, cy­cle across town and then leave it there and con­tinue their jour­ney. ‘We have to get peo­ple to pedal, not take the car, and that means lo­cal peo­ple, too,’ Lebna says.
