Cycling is the ultimate way to get to work – it’s healthy, cheap and enjoyable. E-bikes make it even better by providing just the right amount of assistance. Easy and versatile to use, an e-bike can help colleagues cycle to work quicker, ride for longer and get to the top of your local climbs sooner. They provide all the same thrills of riding, but with less exertion.
An e-bike amplifies your pedalling effort; it doesn’t replace it. If you don’t pedal, it doesn’t go. So every pedelec rider pedals. They are cyclists – cyclists who are getting a helping hand.
Cyclescheme allows particpants to get up to £1,000 worth of bike and accessories through their employer. They then pay a monthly 'salary sacrifice' to effectively 'hire' the bike and kit, over a 12 month period.
