the construction of one bici-maquina per group (limited to 10 people per
group). Each workshop will span 2 days from 10am - 2pm. The workshops will take place at the Black Jaguar workshop located one block west of Costamed on the Federal Highway 307.

More workshops and opportunities for participants to build their own bici-maquinas may be made available if there is enough demand.
Individual bici-maquinas will have a cost of:
- Bici-licuadora (blender) $ 500 labor plus materials
- Bici-bomba (water pump) $ 500 labor plus materials
- Bici-lavadora (washing machine) $ 800 labor plus materials
- Bici-molino (corn mill) $ 800 for labor plus materials
- Bici-granadora (corn sheller) $ 800 labor plus materials
cost of labor goes directly to the companions of the Collective El
Machete who have traveled from San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas to teach the manufacturing of bicycle machines.
Everything possible is being done to acquire reused materials to reduce the costs of bici-maquinas for anyone who is
interested in participating.
