Bicycles in North Africa


The transition of the Bersaglieri to trucks left a large number of bicycles in Italy that could have been sent to Libya with their solid tires, shock absorbing suspension, and two speeds. Anyone know why they weren't?

Have you ever tried cycling through sand? They would only have been of use in very limited parts of the country.

All the best
