Hilarious. Our department (Environment) has had a bike fleet (about 20 bikes all up) for about 8 years, including a couple of electric bikes (but most of them hybrids). When they first came in, there were about 12-20 regular users, but now there are only about half a dozen. These sorts of schemes only work with effective champions promoting their use, including by example. I've yet to see an EL2, let alone an SES, use a bike fleet bike to get to meetings.

We have a couple of bikes at work too. Supposedly used, but as they are at another site to me I don't really know. The only thing I've heard them used for is doing inspections on the Fernleigh Track sharepath.

You also need to be inducted prior to using them so rules out some of the spur of the moment trips.
