BiciTec, a new bicimáquina enterprise in Tecpán, Guatemala, creates 
bicycle technology that contributes toward the sustainability, 
self-reliance and economic development of rural communities in 
Guatemala. BiciTec designs, fabricates and distributes bicimáquinas – 
human-powered machines that use bicycles and pedal-power to drive 
mechanical implements that are efficient, appropriate and revolutionary 
in an age of excessive pollution and over-powered solutions. These 
machines form “the middle ground between the artisanal and the 
industrial,” says Carlos Marroquin, BiciTec founder.

Bicimáquinas, such as corn de-grainers, corn grinders, water pumps, 
coffee depulpers, macadamia nut shellers, aloe shampoo blenders among 
others, help people in rural areas of Guatemala increase their 
productivity in a way that is both economically and environmentally cost 

Help BNB load bikes to BiciTec! - Visit our website for more information 

TIME: Sunday April 7th from 10am to 5pm. Drop in for an hour or help out 
all day!
PLACE: Bikes Not Bombs' warehouse at 10 Harvard Street in Dorchester
