Cycle To Work Scheme

Cycle To Work Scheme

Cycle to Work calculator

Cycle to Work’ is a government-backed scheme that enables you to make up to 42% savings on the price of a new bike and accessories, supported by your employer. Not only can you benefit from these savings, but the scheme also allows you to spread the cost and help you get commuting! Choose a bike, hire it for an agreed length of time from your employer using monthly pre-tax salary sacrifice (meaning you pay less tax) with no interest and then snap it up for a fraction of its value at the end of the hire period.

There is no price limit to the cycle scheme initiative, however, your employer may choose to set a spending limit so it’s best to check with them before choosing your bike.

Please note, the Cycle to Work scheme is only available to those who pay tax through PAYE (Pay as you earn). If your employer does not have a scheme, speak to your HR department who will be able to set one up!

How do I apply for the scheme?

Buying a bike through the Cycle to Work scheme is straightforward. Reserve your bike with us and apply for your voucher directly through your employer.

Please check details of your employer’s scheme before you reserve your bike with us.

Please Note: 
We are unable to hold bikes for longer than 14 days. After the 14 day period, the bike will be relisted back into available stock. We take no responsibility for bikes that are no longer available after the reservation period.
