Welcome to Bike to Work, we offer employers a totally free service to help you take advantage of the recent Government initiative offering tax free bikes for cycling to work.

Bike to Work Scheme for Employers - Employer Benefits

Using the Bike to Work scheme, your company can purchase a brand new bike and safety equipment worth up to 1,000 euro tax free, for your employees. You can use a salary sacrifice arrangement to allow your employees to pay for the bike monthly.

What are the benefits to the employer?

There are multiple benefits for a company to introduce its own cycle to work scheme:

  • Improving Your Company’s Environmental Image

    Encouraging cycling to work reduces carbon pollution and shows the employer has a keen interest in the well-being of the local community and environment. This will improve the company’s corporate image and demonstrate corporate social responsibility.

  • Improving Staff health, fitness and morale

    A healthier, fitter workforce means better performance at work and fewer sick days being taken. Furthermore, the employer is seen to be concerned about employees welfare. The Scheme also offers a tangible benefit to staff in addition to the basic salary package.

  • Reducing Parking and Congestion Problems

    Relieve pressure on corporate parking and traffic congestion.

  • Introducing a cycle to work scheme will reduce traffic congestion and subsequently pollution on the roads in the surrounding area. Furthermore, fewer allocated spaces will be needed/demanded in the workplace for parking.
