Get fit. Get gear. Save money. Save the world.
The Cycle to Work scheme is a government backed initiative that aims to offer a cheaper, healthier and more eco-friendly alternative to the regular commute, by making bikes and safety equipment far more affordable. Overall, you could save up to 42% on high quality, street-ready cycle gear.
The bike and everything you need to stay safe and seen is paid for upfront by your employer, who then leases it straight back to you, which is then paid for in much smaller instalments.
The cost of this equipment is deducted directly from your salary, resulting in big savings on tax and national insurance.
The Cycle to Work scheme provides you with a solid platform to keep fit and get healthy, as well as being substantially better for the environment.
