    Cycle to Work

    Save up to 42% off a new bike with Cycle to Work Scheme.

    To promote healthier journeys to work and reduce environmental pollution, the 1999 Finance Act introduced an annuam tax exception, which allows employers to load cycles and cycling safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. The excemption, known as the Cycle to Work scheme was one of a series of measures introduced under the governments Green Transport Plan.

    Administration of this cheme is carried out by your exmployer or by one of the many companies that offer to act as an administrator, the biggest being Cyclescheme. Ilkley Cycles are affiliated with Cyclescheme, the Bike2Work scheme, Halfords Cycle2Work, Cycle Plus and Bikes for the NHS. These Cycle to Work scheme administrators issue you with a certificate, once authorised by your employer, that can be exchanged for a bike and any safety equipment at Ilkley Cycles.

    You can apply for a certificate online using the relevant Cycle to Work scheme website. You will usually sign an online hire agreement at this time.

    Step 4

    Once approved, a certificate will be issued to either your employer or directly to you, whichever is requested.

    Step 5

    This certificate is then redeemed at Ilkley Cycles in exchange for the bike package. Salary sacrifice then commences over the hire period (usually 12 months).

    Although the above procedure applies to the vast majority of schemes, there are some variations which are a result of the way an employers scheme is set up. Typical examples would be if they are using a finance company or a benefits provider.

    Sale bikes and accessories are subject to a 10% surcharge of the voucher total. E.g. a sale bike purchased to the value of £1000 will be subject to a £100 charge. Please note that Halfords Cycle to Work vouchers will attract a 15% charge on sale purchases.
