The government allows all employees to use a cycle to work scheme. This is organised by their employer and enables them to buy any bike from their gross (pre taxed) salary and pay it off in instalments over a number of years. This means you can save up to 42% off the cost of your bike depending on your tax code. A number of companies can administer the scheme on behalf of the company and we accept all of their vouchers eg bike2work, cyclescheme, cycle2work and the Green Commute Initiative. However please be aware these companies charge a significant administration fee to process the voucher, that needs to be paid on all bikes that are less than RRP. We would recommend Green Commute as a low cost administrator (5% vs the rest 10-15%), they are very easy to sign up with by clicking the link above.
Contact us by visiting or calling to discuss the scheme and what bikes are available on it.
1. Your employer needs to have organised the facility or be registered with one of the Cycle to Work schemes that we are members of. They can find out how to do this on the Cycle to Work Scheme websites. If you or your company need advice on how to set this up in house just give us a call we are experts.
2. Once you have discussed with us and chosen your bike get in touch or apply for a Certificate online using the relevant Cycle to Work Scheme website. Your employee will need to have registered with them.
3. If doing in house your employer will remit funds to CE directly and we will invoice accordingly.
4. If on a sheme, once approved, a Certificate will be issued to either your employer or directly to you. The Certificate is then redeemed at CE (via email or in store) in exchange for the bike.
Unless the price of the purchase is full RRP, the customer is liable for the commission on the voucher charged by the scheme. Please ask for more details.
