Cycle to Work

A cycle-to-work scheme is an employer-provided benefit that enables the loan of a new cycle and safety accessories to employees for cycling to work.

Although employees may be able to purchase the equipment at the end of the hire period, the scheme does not allow employees to buy cycles in the first instance.
