How much do I pay on the Cycle to Work Scheme?

Employees participating in the cycle to work scheme pay nothing upfront but agree to give up part of their gross salary (before tax) in exchange for cycling equipment. This agreement means you pay less income tax and national insurance. As you can see, salary sacrifice is a popular option due to lowering the amount of income that you can be taxed on thus making a significant saving on the cost of your new bike and/or accessories. The exact amount you pay will be dependent on your gross pay & tax bracket, use our savings calculator to see how much you could save.

Is the cycle to work scheme worth it?

Deciding if the cycle to work scheme is right for you? This scheme is an ideal way to get a tax-free bike and equipment for commuting. Aside from saving money on adult bikes, this scheme helps to promote a green commute initiative whereby individuals are encouraged to ride to work rather than drive, to reduce their environmental impact whilst improving their overall health & wellbeing.

What happens after 12 months on the Cycle to Work Scheme?

Once your cycle to work hire agreement comes to an end, your scheme provider will get in contact to discuss the options available. These consist of entering into a new agreement hire period paying a small fee to rehire the bicycle, buying the bike from the scheme or giving the bike back to your employer.

If you leave your employer while the initial Cycle to Work salary sacrifice agreement is ongoing, you must pay off the remaining balance of the bike if you wish to keep the bike. Alternatively, you can return the bike to your ex-employers.


We’re really pleased with the performance of the electric bikes so far and hope to see even greater take up as word spreads about the benefits for teams and individual staff members
