BAYSWATER council has added two electric bikes to its fleet.
The new treadlies mean staff could nip up to Officeworks or Donut King and back without a grunt of carbon dioxide, let alone the nasties that spew from the exhaust of a stinky car.
”Our bikes are recharged using solar panels already in place at the Civic Centre, so there is no additional energy cost,” says Bayswater CEO Andrew Brien.
“Staff will have the option to book an electric bike instead of a car when they take short trips around the local area. Not only does this make economic sense but it’s great for individual health and fitness.”
