Great initial meetings with our local partners!

After two great meetings with our partners, the Trans-Nzoia Boda Boda (TBB) Sacco, we have met with a number of boda boda riders and mechanics that are going to be testing our tubes. Our first more formal meeting lasted over three hours while we discussed our progress over the past year, our goals moving forward and our plan to test our tubes on a number of boda boda throughout Kitale. They also remembered the two boda boda racers that we unsuccessfully tried to track down last summer. They have a six person team that races throughout the country and are eager to try the tubes on their boda boda bikes. We have also narrowed down a mechanic who will be assisting us with tube installations for the next month or two during our testing phase.
