I used to work for Brisbane City Council as a Business Applications Analyst. I used to ride a 200 watt Electric Scooter to work and was known as "The Stig" but have now switched to a proper Electrically Assisted Bike. It is a "Beyond Oil" Chinese built MTB type bike. Now that I am unemployed I no longer ride the bike to work each day.
