Cycle to Work

Cycle to work scheme

Did you know you can save between 32% and 47% on a new bike when you buy it through a Cycle to Work scheme?

Cycle to Work is a government scheme aimed at making cycling more affordable.  It's a great way to get a new bike plus any accessories, clothing and safety equipment you want to buy and spread the cost with low monthly payments.  Plus now there is no £1,000 limit this offers even more flexibility to get the bike you want or even the bike of your dreams.


You can save at least 32% and spread payments over up to 5 years.  Save money, spread the costs and get fit, what's not to like?

As an example, you could spend £1,000 on a bike plus accessories and this would cost less than £30 per month spread over 2 years; a saving of around £320.  It's like a year-round sale, with interest free credit available.

The Cycle to Work scheme is a great way to get an e-bike, making cycling accessible to everyone.  Ever thought of getting an e-bike but are put off by the high initial cost, the cycle to work scheme makes e-bikes affordable.

The table below provides some examples to give you an idea of the costs and savings you can make.  You can also use the Green Commute Initiative's cost calculator to calculate the savings for different costs and periods.

To get a bike through the scheme simply follow a three step process.


Step 1 - Choose a bike and accessories you want.  Come into the shop and we can talk you through the options and give you expert advice.  Once you have chosen your package we then give you a quote. 

Step 2 - Speak to your company HR department (they normally manage the scheme within your employer) and ask them for a Cycle to Work Voucher for the required value.

Step 3 - Once you have the voucher give it to us and we will process your order and get your bike ready.

You then get a new bike at a discounted price with the costs spread over a period that suites you!

If you want to know more about Cycle to Work or just want to have a chat about how you can use the scheme just get in touch by calling our emailing us, or of course pop into our shop.

We partner with two of the leading scheme providers; Green Commute Initiative and Cyclescheme.  If your company uses another scheme that's not a problem as we are always happy to join other schemes.


If your company does not have a Cycle to Work scheme we would be more than happy to help you select a scheme.

We are also now offering on-site demo days where we visit your work location with a selection of bikes for staff to look at and try out.  Get in touch if you would be interested in us visiting you.
