Commuting to Work by Bike
Why cycle to work?
Cycling is quicker than a car in towns, faster than walking and
the bike is one of the most energy-efficient machines . The amount
of energy to power a cycle three miles would only move a car 85
metres! You are also playing an important part in reducing
emissions of the planet-warming gas CO2.
How a cycle to work scheme works
Your employer may either run a cycle to work scheme themselves
or through a third-party provider, like a bike shop. Through the
scheme, you could get access to a loaned bike and/or safety
You must use the bike and/or safety equipment mainly (more than
50 per cent of the time) for 'qualifying' journeys. This means a
journey or part of a journey:
Taking part in the scheme means that you don't have to pay a
lump sum up front to buy a bike and/or safety equipment. Instead,
you could loan the bike and/or equipment from your employer,
usually up to the value of £1000.
