What is the Cycle to work Scheme:

“The cheapest way to buy a bike”

The Cycle to Work Scheme is part of the Government‘s Green Transport Plan aimed at making cycling more affordable and accessible for commuters and leisure riders.

Available to PAYE employees, it enables savings of between 25% and 39% to be achieved on Recommended Retail Prices for new bikes and qualifying accessories.

Recent changes to the scheme mean your choice is significantly increased and eBikes now also qualify.

How much can i save?

Lots! - between 25% & 39% of RRP

Very simply, your employer buys the bike/accessories and you pay them back through monthly deductions form your salary over between 12 and 24 months (sometimes longer).

These deductions are made from your Gross Salary, thereby reducing the amount of your taxable income and effectively reducing the cost of the bike to you.
