Everything you need to know about the Cycle to Work Scheme

What is the Cycle to Work Scheme?

Put simply, the Cycle to Work scheme is a way of making savings for your organisation and your employees. The scheme has some great benefits for everyone. Perhaps most importantly, it's great for the environment and personal wellbeing.

For Employers

The scheme costs nothing to set up, we take care of everything to make the process as simple as possible. As an employer, you make savings. Plus, it's a great incentive for employees and a way of helping to create a healthier, happier workforce.

One of the many benefits to your organisation is that you will reduce your Employer's National Insurance contributions by 13.8% of the value of all equipment supplied. That's effectively 13.8% cash back to your organisation.

For Employees

As an employee, you benefit by paying less for a new bike and cycling equipment. The savings you make are determined by your scheme limit, tax bracket, and the bike and equipment you choose. You could potentially save up to 49% against the retail cost of your bike and accessories.

You pay nothing up front and the cost of your cycle to work bike and equipment package is taken directly from your salary. This salary sacrifice reduces your gross pay meaning you don't pay tax and national insurance on the amount of salary you put towards your new bike. It's a great way to get a new bike and spread the cost while making unparalleled savings!

There really is no better way to get a new bike and/or equipment than through the Cycle to Work scheme with Cycle Solutions. Not only will you benefit from huge savings off the retail price, you'll be able to get exactly what you want to make cycling to work a breeze. In addition to this, by ordering directly with us you will earn reward points to use on any future purchases. All our bikes are built and quality checked by Cytech qualified mechanics before we send them, and delivery is arranged at your convenience. All you need to do once the bike arrives is turn the bars and pop the pedals on (instructions are included).

You choose your bike, accessories or both, then you and your employer both approve the hire agreement and salary sacrifice. Once everything is approved, all in-stock orders are dispatched to your chosen address as soon as possible. You're also able to use our UK-wide partner store network to find a bike shop near you. This means there's even more choice!

Typically, the process takes a few days but will depend on your scheme and its parameters. Once all agreements are signed and providing everything is in stock, it will be sent out as soon as possible. For bike shop orders through our partner network, we issue a letter of collection for you to go and collect your order.
