CAR cyclists rise above ethnic divisions

Cycling together since 2007, these enthusiasts refuse to let poor road conditions - or even conflict - stop them.

    In the Central African Republic, a country reeling with sectarian violence, a group of courageous women and men have braved the bullets and dodged pot holes to keep cycling.

    The group, founded in 2007, has helped prove sport can transcend ethnic and religious divisions. Club members say there is no room for intolerance among them and that cycling has offered a sense of freedom.
