If you already have a bike of your own or have purchased a bike through a previous Cycle to Work scheme, just remember a safety equipment and accessories only contract is still available to you!
We like to offer a wide choice so are partnered with the following schemes: Cyclescheme, Bike2Work, Cycle Solutions, Enjoy Benefits and Green Commute Initiative. More info is available from their websites including nifty calculators where you can work out how much you can save.
A significant change in the Government’s Cycle to Work guidance occurred in June 2019. Traditionally, Cycle to Work scheme providers had a £1,000 limit for their schemes. The Government has now updated their guidance to encourage scheme providers and employers to remove the limit. This means bikes, safety equipment and accessories can be accessed to any value, allowing a greater choice of bikes including ebikes , adapted, specialist and cargo bikes. Your employer and Cycle to Work provider can advise you of the structure of their particular scheme.
From its inception, the Green Commute Initiative (GCI) scheme had no £1,000 limit.
Find out which scheme your employer runs and you are nearly there. If your employer doesn’t have a scheme then this could be the opportunity to get them onboard. GCI can run in addition to an employer’s current scheme in order to offer their employees more choice and flexibility if necessary. If your employer runs a scheme with a provider who we are not currently partnered with, please let us know.
