How it works
The cycle to work scheme allows employees to obtain commuter bikes and cycling accessories through their employer, whilst spreading the cost over 12 months and making unbeatable savings through a tax break.
The employer registers with Cyclescheme - this only takes about 5 mins. Once registered they will be able to access free of charge promotional resources to help them publicise their exciting new employee benefit.
The employee visits their local bike shop or browses online to decide what they want; they then apply via the Cyclescheme website. The employer reviews their request and if they are eligible pays for the equipment.
The employee receives their bike and starts their salary repayments. After 12 months the employer will have recovered their costs and generated up to 13.80% in savings. The employee will be given their ownership options.

"Changing habits and behaviour is a notoriously difficult nut to crack. The workplace cycle challenge targets the right people and genuinely encourages behavioural change in a fun and accessible way." - John Nicklin, Senior Pollution Officer, Lewes District Council
"I can tell who’s cycled to work because they walk into work looking fresher, calmer and happier."
"Every week I talk to staff who have participated in the scheme and it's clear that it has had a really positive impact on the lives of many who work here."
"I would recommend cycling to everyone, it’s great to see how it has taken off in the office."
"Southampton University has operated a cycle to work scheme since 2010. Initially we used a different provider (Halfords), but switched to Cyclescheme in 2011 as it offered a much wider range of bikes."
"Employees have found this hugely beneficial and have really enjoyed it."
