The UK’s first national rewards network for cyclists will launch in just a few weeks’ time giving you access to a range of exclusive offers, promotions and discounts both deeply rooted in the cycling world, and for those times when you’re off the bike too.
How does it all work?
Simply put, BikeMiles® is a currency like air miles, but with bikes. For every mile you cycle, you get 1 BikeMile. The range of offers available each have a different value assigned to them, so a straightforward 10% discount could be equivalent to 100 BikeMiles, whereas an exclusive one-off promotion could be more like 500. With the likes of Netflix, The Body Shop, Costa Coffee, Proviz and Nuun already on board, the range of offers will continue to grow and change over the coming months to better suit the needs of commuting cyclists.
Whether you regularly commute more than 20 miles a day, or only a few miles once a week, there will be a host of rewards and offers available to you ranging from as little as 10 BikeMiles and upwards.
How do I sign up?
Here’s the easy bit. If you’ve used Cyclescheme before then a BikeMiles® account will have already been created for you! All you need to do is log in to your MyCyclescheme account to verify a few details, and then you’re good to go.
When can I start logging my journeys?
BikeMiles® is due to launch later this month. We will notify you by email when you can start using your account and earning rewards, so be sure to check your inbox over the coming weeks!
