Cycle to Work Scheme

 

This August we’re once again offering the cycle to work scheme to employees. This means you can get a new bike and/or safety accessories and pay direct from your salary, saving money and spreading the cost. 

Last year, employees who took advantage of the scheme on average saved £200.

 

Why cycle to work?

If you’ve never tried cycling to work here’s some food for thought or click here to find out what employers are saying about staff who actively travel to work.

 

1. Save money

Not only does Cyclescheme allow you to make great savings on the cost of a new bike, cycling can save you money on the cost of your commute. If you cycle five miles to work and five miles home you’ll rack up around 2,400 miles in a year– in fuel costs alone you’ll be saving over £300. 

 

2. Get fitter

It’s a fair bet to say that riding a bike instead of you current method of commute will improve your health and fitness: a half-hour commute at a moderate intensity can easily burn 250 calories, maybe more – and it’s non-impact so your chances of picking up an injury are low. 

 

3. Help the environment

By riding a bike you’re doing your bit for the environment too. Vehicles on the road are the third largest source of greenhouse gases in the UK.
