Cycle Schemes

If you’re a UK employee, Cycle to Work schemes allow you to spread the cost of a new bike and equipment (depending on the provider this can be from £1000 - £5000 in total), by paying in installments taken directly from your wage. The payments are taken out of your gross wage and your Tax & NI contributions are then worked out based on your new lower gross wage, saving you money!

You’ll enter into a hire agreement with your employer, who owns the bike for the period of the agreement. Depending on the provider, at the end of this period, you then have the option of buying your bike or continuing to use it while you work for the company. If you decide to purchase the bike, the balance you owe will be based on a percentage of how much the bike was worth at the time you took out the scheme, this will varies depening on what provider your company uses, contact your company to find out about relevant fees.

With our stores, you’re quite welcome to top up above the value of your voucher, so don’t worry, you’re not restricted in any way. For example, if your dream ride is more than the voucher's value, simply pay the cash difference or finance the balance.
