The Government's cycle to work initiative allows you to obtain a tax free bike. For most people, this can mean about a 32% saving. Effectively, you enter a loan agreement with your employer and pay for the bike out of your gross salary. At the end of the loan period you are normally able to make a one off payment to take ownership of the bike.
Your employer can handle cycle to work bikes in one of two ways. They can either self administrate the scheme themselves or can use a third party, such as Cyclescheme, to administrate the scheme for them. If your employer self administrates then they will simply need a VAT receipt for their records, please contact us directly if you need this. If your employer is affiliated to Cyclescheme then you can use this quote builder to obtain your quote. Please note, we are not affiliated to other facilitators such as Bike2Work or Cycle2Work and cannot accept their vouchers.
Please Note: We are unable to offer Podium Points and Sale bikes will be subject a 10% premium on the voucher amount when paying by Cyclescheme voucher. This is due to Cyclescheme's charges. This does not apply to if your employer pays us directly.
More information is available at Cyclescheme's Website

Are Podium Points available when paying by Cyclescheme voucher?
We are unable to offer our Podium Point scheme when payment is by Cyclescheme voucher. This is because Cyclescheme receive a commission from each sale. If your employer is paying us directly then you are eligible for Podium Points.
Are Sale/Discounted bikes available when paying by Cyclescheme voucher?
Yes. However, due to their reduced margin, sale bikes will be subject to a 10% premium. This premium will only be applied to the voucher amount so if you are topping up your voucher your "top up" payment will not be subject to this premium. This is standard procedure for Cyclescheme stores.
