Cycle to work scheme

Welcome to Cycle to work scheme, we are here to help you take advantage of the recent Government initiative offering tax free bikes for cycling to work.

Using the Cycle to work scheme, your employer can help you obtain a brand new bike and safety equipment worth up to 1,000 euro. You can use a salary sacrifice arrangement to pay for the bike monthly and that means you can save up to 52% of the retail price of bike and equipment. Your employer also makes savings to encourage them.
