Your Passoni is the second best bike you have - the most powerful is the Buffalo Bike.

Passoni is a niche specialist Italian bicycle manufacturer. Formed over 30 years ago by Luciano Passoni, a man with a dream to build the best, most precious and exclusive bikes in the world. He wanted to combine his passion of cycling with a never ending pursuit of excellence in both technology and design. His expression,meaning, strength, and tradition holds strong today, defining what is a unique 'Passoni' style. More than three decades of success have made Passoni one of the most appreciated producers of Italian frames in the world. Passonis frames are unique, a combination of quintessential Italian styling and technology that stands alone. An investment in new manufacturing techniques and a dedication to a customised, personal approach, enable Passoni to personally tailor each machine to meet all the customisation needs of people searching for a very special experience A very small number of products are hand crafted individually each year for highly discerning customers and distributed exclusively around the world.

EDUCATING GIRLS IS THE KEY TO ENDING POVERTY - If ever there was a silver bullet for poverty, this is it. Poverty is cyclical. The best indicator of if a child will end up in poverty is if her parents live in poverty. But there is one secret weapon underused, or deliberately neglected, in most communities around the world that can break this cycle: the education of girls and women. Girls who complete their secondary education are six times less likely to be married as children. Even just completing primary education has enormous benefits. In rural developing countries, the biggest barrier to education is often the physical act of getting to school. Tasked with many more domestic chores than boys, girls fall behind because of the cultural obstacles they face. In many areas where we work, it is common for girls to arrive at school late and tired if they arrive at all. Receiving a bicycle is a game-changer for a child. Instead of spending hours reaching or returning from school, they can tackle homework while its still light outside. As compared to cash transfers, the bicycle is an asset transfer that benefits not only the child, but also the whole family.
