Boost employee wellbeing and the environment with a Cycle to Work scheme

Going greener is of vital importance to companies these days, not just for the planet, but to attract a more socially conscious workforce.

One of the best ways to do this is by encouraging employees to commute to work more sustainably, and our Cycle to Work scheme is the ideal way to do that.

Offered in partnership with Halfords or Cycle Solutions, the cycle to work scheme is implemented via a salary sacrifice agreement. This means your employees can save up to 42% on the cost of a new bike by saving on Tax & NIC*, and at the same time, your organisation can also save on employer NIC. The bike and safety accessories are then leased to them over a fixed term.

How Edenred’s Cycle to Work scheme can benefit everyone

As cycling is a form of exercise, there’s no doubt that the benefits to those cycling can be enormous. And when it comes to the environment at large, the fewer cars on the road, the better.

However, the Edenred Cycle to Work scheme can provide many more benefits, which include:
