A must read: Philip Gourevitch’s New Yorker piece on Rwandan road cyclists.

A remarkably moving story of a country’s unsteady recovery from genocide combined with a series of touching personal tales. Above all though, it is an unintentional and yet convincing ode to Amartya Sen’s idea of development as enhanced substantive freedoms.
