If you cycle to work, you can save up to 42% on a new bike and safety equipment thanks to a government backed scheme that makes a new commuter bike much more affordable.
Your employer buys the bike and equipment, then leases it to you through an interest-free salary sacrifice scheme. In short, this means you'll pay less for your bike and will be able to pay in instalments. The Cycle to Work Scheme is a salary sacrifice. This means the cost of a new bike and equipment is deducted from your salary as a non-cash benefit, so you save on tax and national insurance.
Tredz accepts cycle to work vouchers from all these providers.

If your commute is a few miles across town, a practical hybrid is ideal for a hassle-free journey. It's the number-one choice for a reliable everyday bike.
Add a stylish helmet, USB rechargeable lights and a secure D lock and you're ready to roll. All for less than £30 a month if you're a basic rate taxpayer. That's a saving of 32%.
Got a rough ride to work? If you take the road less travelled to the office, a durable mountain bike will get you there.
Add a helmet, high-vis jacket and ultra-bright lights, all for a little over £50 a month if you're a basic rate taxpayer. That's a saving of £32%.

To benefit from the Cycle to Work scheme's tax and national insurance savings, you must:
Cycle to Work covers the following bikes and safety equipment:
We accept vouchers from most national schemes like Cyclescheme and Cycleplus. We also accept vouchers from in-house schemes run by independent companies, as well as Halfords vouchers. If your voucher is from any other scheme, please get in touch at email@example.com to check if we can accept it.
For most people, the maximum is £1,000 including VAT. However, with Cyclescheme, if you want a more expensive bike, you can top up your contributions to cover the difference. Unfortunately you can't top up beyond the maximum with other Cycle to Work providers.
Any cycle you can use for commuting, whether it has two wheels, three or even four! It can be a road bike, a hybrid, a mountain bike or a folding bike, but not a children's bike.
You can also use your voucher to get any safety equipment you need for commuting. This might include:
Government guidelines say your bike should be used at least 50% for riding to work. So it's fine to use it for leisure riding too.
Your employer owns the bike and equipment and loans it to you during the hire period.
To keep the scheme tax free, there can be no guarantee your employer will transfer ownership at the end of the hire period. However, this is usually what happens. Because HMRC has set fair market values that the employer must pay to keep the bike, you may be asked to pay 18% of the value for a bike costing less than £500, or 25% for one costing £500+.
More often, though, your employer will agree to extend the hire period by up to 36 months. During this time you make no further payments and at the end of the term the bike's fair market value is considered negligible and ownership will be transferred to you.
This all depends on your own tax status. Generally, without taking into account any payments or deposits at the end of the hire term, basic rate taxpayers will save 32% and higher rate taxpayers 42%.
Yes, you can use your voucher on any discounted bike and accessory.
