    Do I need to get a bike with my Certificate?

    No! With Cyclescheme you choose the gear you need to cycle commute. Check out the 3 possible Cyclescheme packages below:

    Just a bike - your no fuss option. Great if you already have a lock, lights and helmet to hand.

    A bike and accessories - the full works; perfect for new cyclists or those looking for a serious update.

    Just accessories - ideal for existing cycle commuters. Refresh your accessories - no new bike required.

    Once you’ve chosen your preferred package - apply for your Cyclescheme Certificate.


  • I already own a bike; can I obtain just accessories through Cyclescheme?

    I already own a bike; can I obtain just accessories through Cyclescheme?

    Yes. Your Cyclescheme application can include accessories without the need to include a bike in your request.  

    You will then be able to enter the exact equipment/accessories you wish to get through the scheme.

  • I already have a Hire Agreement in place; can I get another Certificate for accessories only?

    I already have a Hire Agreement in place; can I get another Certificate for accessories only?

    Unfortunately if you are partway through your initial hire period, you are unable to place another Certificate request until the current one has ended.  If you are in an ‘Extended Use Agreement’ with Cyclescheme (as part of the End of Hire Process), you are able to request another Certificate.

  • Can I add my own funds towards the value of my package?

    Can I add my own funds towards the value of my package?

    The maximum Certificate value available via the scheme for the vast majority of participants is £1,000 inc. VAT (unless your employer has their own Consumer Credit Authorisation).
     
    As a general rule, if the total value of the equipment you require for your cycle commute is in excess of your Employer’s maximum limit, you may be able to add your own funds to the Certificate value. 
     
    However, as there are a handful of employers that don't allow this practice it is advisable to check with your employer, or our Contact Centre.
     
    If you choose to add your own funds, you need to remember that you will not make a saving on anything over the maximum Certificate value available via your Employer’s scheme and all Equipment will remain the property of your Employer during the Hire Agreement.
