What is it?
The Government's cycle to work initiative allows you to obtain a tax free bike. For most people, this means about a 32% saving. Effectively, you enter a loan agreement with your employer and pay for the bike out of your gross salary. At the end of the loan period you are normally able to make a one off payment to take ownership of the bike.
Your employer can handle cycle to work bikes in one of two ways. They can either self administrate the scheme themselves or can use a third party, such as Cyclescheme, to administrate the scheme for them. If your employer self administrates then they will simply need a VAT receipt for their records, please contact us directly if you needs this. If your employer is affiliated to Cyclescheme then you can use this quote builder to obtain your quote. Please note, we are not affiliated to other facilitators such as Bike2Work and Cycle2Work.
Please Note: Sale bikes will be subject a 10% premium on the voucher amount when paying by Cyclescheme voucher. This is due to Cyclescheme's charges. This does not apply if your employer pays us directly through the shop or our website, rather than proceeding with a Cyclescheme voucher.
