Pedal power will be the preferred mode of transport at Australia’s Casey and Davis stations this summer.

The Australian Antarctic Division has provided bicycles for expeditioners to use around station, in addition to walking, utes and small utility vehicles.

This week expeditioners at Casey station were in the saddle for the National Ride to Work Day, braving minus 18 degree temperatures for the trip between the Red Shed and Operations Building.
