Cycle To Work Scheme

Cycle To Work

Get a new bike and save cash

If you cycle to work, you can save up to 42% on a new bike and safety equipment thanks to a government backed Cycle to Work 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 you 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. See how much you can save with our handy Cycle to Work calculator.

Tredz accepts cycle to work vouchers from all these providers.

Will the bike be reserved for me straight away?

We are unable to reserve a bike until we have received your certificate. As soon as we have your certificate we can arrange delivery.

Can I add money for a more expensive bike?

That depends on the Cycle to Work provider. With Cyclescheme you can top up the difference between the price of the bike and the maximum allowed through the Cycle to Work scheme. Unfortunately you can't top up with the other providers.
