Cyclescheme is the UK's number one provider of tax-free bikes for the Government's Cycle to Work initiative. It's a brilliant programme where everyone wins - employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too! Cyclescheme has a great track record in helping businesses of all sizes to set up and run successful Cycle to Work schemes.
How it Works
The cycle to work scheme is a government initiative which allows employees to hire bicycles tax free from their employers using salary sacrifice. As the payments into the scheme are made before tax and national insurance are calculated this leads to potential savings of up to 42%
Typical example for an employee earning £18,000 pa
Please Note: Savings will differ for each individual
How to Apply
If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or call us to ask us for a quotation for the bicycle and accessories you wish to choose and pass the quote to your employer. Once they check that you are eligible and are happy you have met their own criteria, you will be sent a certificate which you will be able to exchange for the bike/accessories
Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000.

Please Note: Cyclescheme is not available on bikes that are on Sale or on Promotion unless specifically stated.
