David Mozer, the director of BICYCLE AFRICA, is an African studies specialist and accomplished bicyclist. His first trip to Africa was in 1975 as a Peace Corps Volunteer to Liberia. During the next two years he taught math and science and hiked hundreds of miles visiting isolated village schools directing an education extension program. He then traveled extensively studying the rest of West Africa. After completing a Masters Degree in Applied Economics, David returned to Liberia on contract with the American Embassy, at which time he administered a grant program for village development and reported on economic conditions. During his travels, David has collected hundreds of pieces of African art, a stack of material on culture and folklore and extensive knowledge of conditions in Africa. He has appeared on National Public Radio, the Voice of America and the Voice of Kenya discussing Africa. David also has taught African Studies at the college and high school level and is the director of the International Bicycle Fund where he works on rural development, environmental issues, urban planning and cross-cultural understanding. David is the author of 'Bicycling In Africa' and numerous articles on transportation and travel.
