When his sponsor John came to visit Cambodia for the first time, he bought a cheap second hand bicycle for $35 from St 107, near St 182 where many bicycle shops are located. This proved to be a convenient and fun way for him to explore Phnom Penh and avoid the costs and hassles of using motos and tuk tuks all the time. Then when he left, he donated the bike to Choice to be given to one of the kids.
