Cycle to work scheme

cycling

We subscribe to the Cyclescheme cycle to work scheme, which helps people to get a tax-free bike and save about 40% of the usual cost.

Applications are submitted in April and October every year. You can apply to take part and hire a bike plus safety equipment up to the value of £1,000 as long as:

  • you are a Trust employee aged 18 or over
  • your employment contract exceeds the 12 month hire period
  • your wages do not fall below minimum wage after salary deductions.

We buy the bike on your behalf and lease it back to you through a monthly salary sacrifice scheme, deducted from your gross pay. Once the hire period is complete, you have option to buy the bike for a fair market value or to extend the lease.
