According to Variety, The Rwanda bike project focuses on Jonathan Boyer, who became the first American cyclists to race in the Tour de France in 1981. He finished 12th in 1983, becoming known for eating tuns of nunts and fruit, and being intensely religious. orig_Boyer.Rwanda Boyer would later plead guilty in 2000 to 10 counts of felony child molestation and was sentenced to a year in jail and five years probation. He began bicycle racing again after completing his probation and planned on living in Rwanda - where he and his wife run the Team Rwanda cycling team and work with the Project Rwanda relief agency, which focuses on providing bicycles and other aid to Rwandans. Team Rwanda member Adrien Niyonshuti, who lost six brothers in the 1994 genocide, completed in the 2012 London Olympics in the cross-country mountain bike race and has opened his own cycling academy.
