Bike Week 2017- Cycle to work Schemes


The cycle to work initiative is a tax- efficient, salary sacrificed employee benefit that provides a way of encouraging more adults to take up cycling. It allows employers to loan bikes and safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. Around 180,000 people a year participate in cycle to work schemes.
