"Free electric bikes launched for staff at Oxford Brookes"
The bikes have been donated by the university's own cycle BOOM research study, a completely different project, after researchers had finished using them.
That three-year study, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, is investigating cycling in the "older population" and how it affects independence, health and well being.
