Superfly report to IUCN Special Initiatives Grant

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature provided Superfly, Ltd. with a US$10,000 grant to create an enabling environment for bicycling in Solomon Islands rural areas. Bicycles represent a fantastic transport solution for rural Solomon Islands people to save time, money, and both improve and maintain their fitness. Better transport means improved access to markets, employment opportunities, and services.
