Muyambi Muyambi
Author of The Magical Wooden Bicycle
National Geographic Traveler of the year (2013)

Muyambi was born in Rukungiri, Uganda.  Upon earning a United World College (UWC) scholarship, he moved abroad for the first time attending the Red Cross Nordic United World College in Flekke, Norway. He later went on to pursue a dual undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering and Economics at Bucknell University and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

It was during his undergraduate years at Bucknell that Muyambi and a small group of passionate students about world change developed what is now Cycle Connect. 

Always a passionate cyclist, in 2013 Muyambi biked across the US becoming the National Geographic Traveler of the year, which helped to garner more support and momentum for Cycle Connect.  Muyambi still wanted to find a way to share his most cherished childhood memory of building his own wooden bicycle and inspire others to see his native Uganda in a different light.  It is with this motivation that Muyambi wrote The Magical Wooden Bicycle. As it turns out, creativity and innovation can be found anywhere — even in the most remote corners of the world.
