Get out on the road for less

Everybody wants a new bike right? Maybe you already have 5 and just need that one more to round off your collection. Or maybe you have gotten sick and tired of the rush hour tube/train/bus and want an alternative way to get to work that doesn’t break the bank, the environment or your sanity. A cycle to work scheme may be the an

Cycling can be expensive, especially if you are just starting out and need to get all the essential kit on top of the bike itself. Instead of paying for everything in one go, why not split the payments into 12 monthly instalments, and why not make those monthly instalments tax free.

This is how it works

In a nutshell, your employer is buying the bike and equipment for you to use and you pay back out of you salary in 12 monthly tax free instalments. It is important to note that throughout the 12 months you are essentially renting the bike, after which you can pay a small fee and get the bike and equipment signed over to you, or rent for a longer period.

First thing first, you need to find out what scheme your employer is signed up to. There are a few out there but all essentially work in the same way. The schemes we currently except are:

  • Cycle Scheme
  • Cycle Plus
  • Bike 2 Work Scheme
  • Cycle 2 Work
  • Green Commute Initiative

Most schemes require you to get a listed quote of everything you want to get, i.e.: bike, lock, lights, helmet etc. This is when you can get in touch with us and we can go through all the available options with you. Some scheme will have a spend cap (usually £1000) so it is worth asking your employer how much you are entitled to. Or come to see us and we can find out for you.

Once you have chosen everything you need we will send the quote to you digitally via email, then all you have to do is hand it in to your employer and wait for your acceptance confirmation. After you receive that happy message you should not have to wait to long to receive your voucher, which you simply bring to store and exchange for your new shiny bike. You then ride off into the sunset. Simple.
