Commuting by Bike

Cycling to work is a great way to lose weight and get fit, cut travel costs and beat congestion – all in a journey you’ve got to make anyway.

Cycle to Work scheme

This scheme allows employees to borrow or hire a bicycle from their employer.  Typically, it uses salary sacrifice to make monthly payments from your pre-tax/NI pay.

Employers can operate their own scheme, or they can use one of a number of scheme operators to do the hard part for them.

To find out more, and to see if your employer operates the scheme, please visit
