The History Of The Bike To Work Scheme

The Bike To Work scheme was introduced by the government back in 1999. It’s a UK Government tax exemption initiative that was created to not only help the environment but to help promote a healthier lifestyle, specifically on journeys to work.

The Bike To Work scheme has allowed employees up and down the country to loan and eventually own bikes and bike safety equipment with awesome tax free benefits and it’s now available on selected models of our electric bikes too.

How The Bike To Work Scheme Can Help You

Our Model 15 and Model 18 bikes meet the EAPC regulations and as such, qualify for the tax incentives, providing you’re going to use your bike to travel to and from work. Generally speaking, the bike to work scheme is provided by the employer so you’ll have to consult with your current employer to make sure they’re taking part.

If they are, you could find yourself enjoying one of the above models -if they aren’t currently signed up to a scheme, you can ask them to do so.

It couldn’t be easier to make savings, just complete the form below and we’ll get back to you with a written quote to take to your employer. Once all the paperwork has been completed, we’ll get the ball rolling from there.

Why Employers Use The Bike To Work Scheme

New to the concept of the Cycle To Work scheme, but want to become involved as an employer? Then check out some of the benefits opting in could offer you and your workforce.

Money Saving – Due to a reduction in your National Insurance Contributions, organisations have been seen to save on average 13.8% of the total value of their ‘salary sacrifice’.

Improved Staff Attendance – Cycling helps improve physical health, reducing the amount of sickness amongst your workforce. It’s also been shown to have a very positive effect on a person’s mental health increasing confidence and wellbeing. Sit back and watch your attendance levels go through the roof.

Environmental Benefits – As any company knows, improving your carbon footprint doesn’t just give you a better environment to enjoy yourself, it can have a huge impact on your ROI. More and more people search for environmentally friendly companies to work with – become one.

Bigger Incentives – The Bike To Work scheme isn’t limited to just electric bikes. Your employees will also find themselves privy to discounts on electric bike accessories too. This makes it a much broader rewards scheme with bigger incentives, making your employees happy and your company more appealing to future employees too.

How are the savings made?

Your employer buys the bike from E Rider Ltd through the scheme and hires it to you. You then pay back the loan on your bike from gross pay.

Your payments are deducted by your employer from your monthly salary.
