Rewarding your employees with a new bike and accessories is easier than you think... and it's cost effective! Here are just a few of the reasons you should join the growing number of businesses encouraging active travel and a healthy lifestyle.
The Cycle to Work Scheme offers tax incentives that enable your staff to enjoy great savings on the price of a new bicycle. Once you sign up for a Cycle to Work Scheme in partnership with Alpine Bikes, it gives employees the opportunity to lease the bicycle of their choice via a tax-efficient salary sacrifice scheme over an agreed term (typically 12 or 18 months).
Employees can select from Alpine Bikes' vast range of bikes* and top up their order with related safety equipment (like a lock, helmet and set of lights). The combined value of the bike and accessories can be up to £1000 or more depending on your credit licence. Employees get to spread the cost of the whole order over an agreed period by having the cost of the bike deducted from their GROSS pay. The net result is that each employee gets the use of a brand new bike at approximately 25% to 39% off its regular price whilst spreading the cost. *This excludes sale bikes.
Setting up a Cycle to Work scheme is quick and easy whether you have one or 1,000 employees. If you are an employer who would like to enquire about signing up for the Alpine Bikes Cycle to Work scheme email us at email@example.com. Please fill in the form in the email so we've got as much information as possible to help you get started. Our Cycle to Work team will then contact you and provide you with all the relevant information required to sign up so that your employees can start enjoying the benefits of Cycle to Work.
We’re been running successful Cycle to Work schemes across Scotland since the initiative began in 2003. Our experience means we can help you at every stage, from legal and admin documentation to marketing and cycle safety workshops. We’ll adapt the scheme to suit your organisation’s needs and offer a support package to inform your staff of the great benefits they’ll receive through Cycle to Work.
Your employees will be able to choose their new bike from the largest independent cycle retailer in Scotland. We offer bikes and accessories from Trek, Cannondale, Genesis, Whyte, Orange and Bontrager to name a handful. We’ll guide your staff through all parts of the scheme, from the initial setup to bike advice and their first FREE service. We want to ensure that employees get the most out of their Cycle to Work bikes.
