Researchers at The Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research (BHI) now have access to two electric bikes to use when commuting to other campuses in and around the city for research needs.
The bikes were made possible through the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure Community Grants Program and will be available to researchers who are travelling between campuses to attend meetings, collect research samples or collaborate with other researchers.
BHI Facility Manager Kathryn Hudson says the bikes will save researchers time which they usually would have spent sitting in traffic, looking for a park or walking to and from public transport. This time can now be better spent on their life-changing research projects.
“Many of our researchers regularly attend other campuses including the University of Adelaide, the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), and the new University of Adelaide Medical School,” she said.
“The electric bikes will give all researchers at the BHI confidence on timing and ability to travel door to door easily with their work. And the best part is it’s a healthy way to travel!”
