Cycle to work scheme for employees

Discover great benefits with the bicycle scheme for employees!

Once your employer has registered with us, you’ll have access to a bunch of benefits after you’ve obtained your tax-free bike and accessories. From saving money to feeling fitter and healthier, we’ve listed some key employee benefits of the cycle to work scheme below.

Why choose Cycle Solutions?

Huge savings on bikes and accessories

Save up to 49% of the retail cost of bikes and accessories when you buy a bike through your employer, who is signed up to our scheme. For an estimation of just how much you could save, visit our visit our savings calculator.

Expert advice & top customer service

Our dedicated experts are available via phone, live chat or email to make sure you get the most out of your scheme. Plus, our bikes are assembled in-house and fully checked by CyTech qualified technicians, the internationally recognised and accredited scheme for bicycle technicians.

Massive bike choice

We work with over 400 top quality bike brands, including Specialized, Giant and Cannondale. Plus, our team of expert advisers are on-hand to help you find the equipment most suited to your needs.

Comprehensive warranty

It is generally standard practice for a bike warranty to cover parts and labour for 12-months. However, we provide an 18-month warranty on all bikes that we supply through our online store. This gives you even greater peace of mind when you obtain a bike with us.

Benefits of cycling to work

Live a healthier lifestyle

Raising your heart rate five times a week reduces your risk of a stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes by up to 50%. Plus, cycling is low impact, so it’s a lot gentler on the joints than running or other high-impact activities.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Driving to work puts extra carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to global climate change. By riding a bike to work, you and your organisation can be carbon neutral, improving both the health of the planet and you!

Cut commuting costs

Cycling to the office can cut your daily travel costs! Whether you normally drive or use public transport, hopping on your bike and riding to work can save you money, whilst boosting your health.

No. We offer a completely free end of scheme management option to ensure that your employees maximise the savings that are available to them through their Cycle to Work scheme. With no additional costs for employees at the end of their salary sacrifice period, the savings they make through salary sacrifice are not eroded by any fees or costs. So, when we quote savings for employees on our website, in our free marketing communications, and at our pop-up shop roadshows, we know that those are true savings that your employees will enjoy.

We have over fourteen years' experience of working with employers large and small, including UK Government departments like HM Revenue & Customs, Department for Transport as well as other employers including Metropolitan Police, Network Rail and TfL.

We can offer employees the widest choice. Our best of both world's solution will enable your employees to choose their cycle to work package from either our comprehensive online store with the widest selection of bikes and cycling equipment, or from our UK-wide network of local partner bike shops. We can help your company to be more environmentally friendly, save money and help create healthier, happier staff. We're biased but we think cycling is amazing, it can get you places, improve your mental health and fitness, plus it means less time sat in traffic or on crowded public transport.

We offer flexible scheme limits, easy administration, simple scheme set-ups, dedicated support and bespoke communications. Plus, it's a great incentive to offer your employees, it can save you money, and it's free and simple to sign up.

As an employer there are many benefits; from NI savings to happier employees, there's no downside to signing up to the Cycle to Work scheme.

As long as you receive your pay through PAYE, are 16 or over, your employer is signed up to our scheme, and you earn more than National minimum wage after the salary sacrifice, you are eligible to take advantage of the scheme. If you are under 18 you will need your guardian as guarantor.

We can directly supply over 400 cycling brands and have a wide range of bicycles, kit and accessories to choose from.

If you choose your cycle to work package directly from Cycle Solutions, you also benefit from discounts, eight weeks free insurance from Cycleplan, extended warranty, great savings, and a kit bag with tools. If you prefer, we work with independent partner bike shops all over the UK meaning you can visit them to get expert advice, get fitted for your new bike, and collect your cycle to work order instore.

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.
