We have teamed up with OnYourBike to offer huge savings on the cost of a new bike for anyone who cycles to work.

SOME BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Cycle to work - A great way to save!
Government legislation is allowing us, in partnership with OnYourBike, to offer workplaces substantial savings on the cost of bikes and cycling gear for staff who cycle to work. It enables employers to make bikes and cycling equipment available to their staff at greatly reduced prices. They can save up to 50% off the normal retail price. Cycle to Work is a scheme made possible by the Government’s Green Transport Plan.
Cycle to work - The Green Transport Plan
Cycle to work takes advantage of a generous tax allowance made available in the Government’s Green Transport Plan. This plan has been set up specifically to promote the use of bikes as an alternative mode of transport. Substantial investment is being made to develop and improve local cycle routes in order to make cycling safer and more enjoyable. The aim of Cycle to Work is to get more people cycling to work on a regular basis. This will ease traffic congestion, reduce pollution to the environment and also encourage a healthier lifestyle.
Cycle to work - How does it operate?
Cycle to Work allows employers to loan bikes and cycle equipment to their staff as part of their employee benefits package. It makes it possible for employees to benefit from a generous tax allowance if they opt for the bike instead of the car. To take advantage of Cycle to Work, employees agree to a small ‘salary sacrifice’ over an agreed period (normally 18 months) which is made from their gross salary and crucially not their take home pay.
