Active Benefits is a new range of added value offers that we and our partners are excited to offer to our participants and their friends and families. We have strived to produce a small number of high quality offers and services that will provide real value to our participants and support our core proposition of incentivising cycling.
Free 6 week service
The gears and brakes on your new bike naturally stretch after the first 6 weeks of riding, which can hinder performance. To help keep your bike in tiptop shape it’s recommended you have it serviced by a professional mechanic after this time.
Luckily with Cyclescheme you can get a free 6-week bike service at the store you purchased the bike from (valid at participating bike stores only). This is a great opportunity to get your bike checked over, whilst receiving handy tips about maintaining your bike in the future.
The free 6-week service is valid at participating bike stores only. The Cyclescheme bike must have been purchased in-store and at the same store conducting the free service. Please contact your bike store for further details. Online bike purchases are excluded from this offer.
Automatic enrolment with BikeRegister
Cyclescheme and Bike Register are changing the face of Bike Recovery.
BikeRegister is the UK’s largest cycle database and aims to reduce cycle theft, identify stolen bikes and assist in owner recovery. BikeRegister securely holds your bike’s details, and if your bike is stolen it can be ‘flagged’ as such in the database. This means the police can quickly identify your bike (and its owner) if they recover it.
Registering with BikeRegister increases the chance of you being reunited with your bike in the event of it being stolen, but it does not help to make it a less desirable target for thieves. As such, we have also secured an exclusively negotiated 25% discount for Cyclescheme participants on BikeRegister QR Code labels that provide your bike with a visual deterrent to potential thieves. QR Code labels also allow anyone with a smartphone to quickly check if your bike is stolen meaning a potential buyer can quickly alert the police to its locality.
As a Cyclescheme participant offer you the chance to easily enrol with BikeRegister once you have collected your bike, minimising the work for you, leaving you free to enjoy your new ride. We always recommend that you check the details for yourself post registration to ensure they are complete and valid.
