Frequently asked questions
How much can I save?

You can use the handy calculator above to work out what you can expect to save. On average it is between 25-39% (dependent upon the rate of tax that you pay).

How does the scheme work?

You order a bike and then hire it back from your employer for an agreed period; by way of monthly payments which are deducted directly from your salary. At the end of this hire period, your employer will normally let you keep the bike (they may charge you a nominal fee, however, this is at the discretion of your employer).

What vouchers do you accept?

We accept vouchers from all cycle to work providers, if you are uncertain please Contact Us for further assistance.

Can I top up the voucher?

The guidance for Cycle to Work has been updated and resulted in the cap being raised over £1000, however, this also means that it is no longer possible to top up a voucher. If in doubt please Contact Us for further assistance.

What if the value of the bike exceeds £1000?

The government updated their guidance for Cycle to Work which resulted in the £1000 limit being scrapped. However, this now means that it is at the sole discretion of the employer as to whether they are happy to allow bikes over the value of £1000 to be ordered on the scheme. Some scheme providers have an online tool where you can quickly check your employer's limit. You should, therefore, always check with your employer before obtaining a quote.

Can I include the carriage fee within the voucher?

Yes, the carriage fee can be included in the total value of the voucher.

When do I order the bike?

Once you receive your voucher, you can order the bike as normal on the website and select either; the ‘cyclescheme’ payment option (if you have a voucher from or ‘Other Cycle To Work Schemes’ if you have a voucher from any other provider.

Are there any items that are ineligible?

All bikes, parts, and accessories are available to order with the exception of;

  • Power meters
  • Bike Computers and GPS units
Why can't I see the Cyclescheme option in the checkout?

Firstly, ensure there are no ineligible items in your basket.

Then please create an account, or log in to an existing account before proceeding to the checkout. You'll then be able to see the Cyclescheme option in the checkout payment methods.

Can I return the bike under the 30-day test ride policy?

No, Cycle to Work bikes are excluded from this offer.

What if I need to return or exchange anything?

Items can be exchanged like for like or to same value. Returns must be in as new condition and require written employer authorisation. See our Returns information.

Can I add additional items onto the order to make up the balance of the voucher?

Yes, you can. Your order must match the value of your voucher (which is why most employers insist on a quote first).

Recent changes to cycle scheme rules
What’s changed.

Prior to June 2019 the limit was capped at £1000. The DFT have since updated their guidance to allow Certificates of any value to be requested.

Why has it changed?

Due to their value, e-bikes were precluded from being ordered through the scheme. Given their popularity and demand for cycle commuting this was a major issue.

Therefore, the Cycle to Work Alliance (CTWA) lobbied for changes to the scheme to promote more cycling inclusivity, which also happened to include the purchase of e-bikes. This has resulted in the limit of the scheme being updated so that you can now obtain a market leading Ribble e-bike.

Can any employee order a bike over £1000?

Not necessarily, employers are free to set any limit that they see fit. Therefore, before applying for a Cycle to Work certificate we would first advise that you to speak to your employer’s cycle to work administrator. They will provide you with all the necessary information that you need for your application.

(If your employer already has their own FCA authorisation then they probably already accept orders above £1000).


E-bikes are changing the way that we travel but are more expensive than traditional bikes. You can now get your hands on one of the most advanced e-bikes in the world for a fraction of its RRP.

Is the Cycle to Work worth it?

Absolutely! Previously you would only make any savings on the first £1000 of the total value of the order. Now you make savings across the value of the entire bike package. These savings could save you on average somewhere between 25-39% of the value of the order. We think you will agree this is a substantial saving.
