Cycle to Work

How it works

The Salary Sacrifice Cycle to Work Scheme gives you the opportunity to obtain a regular bike or e-bike and accessories up to the value of £10,000 of your choice by sacrificing a portion of your salary. You can find out your nearest participating bike store and online bike stores, where you can obtain a quote for your chosen bike & accessories by clicking on the link below, and viewing the Cyclescheme website which has a list.

The Trust will carry out a few checks to make sure that you are eligible for the scheme, such as being a permanent member of staff and ensuring that you will not be dropped below minimum wage.


Benefits of the scheme

  • An opportunity for you to obtain a brand new bike every year
  • You will make savings on your Tax, National Insurance, and pension (if applicable) contributions 
  • Spread the cost of the bike & accesories over 12 months
  • Chance to explore and get fitter at the same time
