MayaPedal is a non-governmental organization in San Andrés Itzapa, Chimaltenango, Guatemala. It started in 1997, with the involvement of a group of Canadians from the organization PEDAL. In 2001 it was constituted under local control as Asociación Maya Pedal. Used bicycles are converted to pedal-powered machines, "bicimáquinas," which aid the work of small-scale, self-sustainable projects.

Bicimáquinas (translates as "bicycle machines") are pedal-powered machines that act as an intermediate technology to assist in obtaining a higher production capacity in agriculture and in small business.
