This article explores 'bicycles for development' (BFD) - a 'movement' that positions the bicycle as a tool to promote key development goals, especially those related to the achievement of gender equality. Despite the increasing growth and prominence of BFD, there remains limited empirical research that investigates the intersections among gender, development, mobility and technologies such as the bicycle. Using visual participatory action research - informed by postcolonial feminist theory and new materialisms - this study explored how bicycles shaped the lives of women and girls in both structured BFD programmes (Uganda) and recreational cycling environments (Nicaragua).
