Cycle to Work Scheme

A cycle-to-work scheme is a government initiative that allows you to purchase a new bike and cycling accessories tax-free with savings of up to 42% on the total cost. You save by paying for the package through your pre-tax salary over a 12 month period – this is commonly referred to as a ‘salary sacrifice’. With Islabikes and Cyclescheme the process couldn’t be easier. 

1) Shop

Use the Cyclescheme savings calculator to choose the package that is right for you, this will tell you exactly how much each bike is at full retail price, your total savings and the exact monthly payment so you won’t be burdened with an un-budgeted expense.

Once you have chosen the products and the amount you want to spend for Cyclescheme simply speak to your employer to get your Cyclescheme unique employer code and visit to request a certificate.

When your employer approves your request, Cyclescheme will send a certificate to you. 

2) Get your package

Simply email your order, delivery address and certificate details to and we will confirm, complete and dispatch your order. 

3) Choose your ownership options

When your Hire Agreement and salary sacrifice ends, you can keep your Cyclescheme package by making a small additional payment.

Cyclescheme will contact you regarding ownership options at the end of your Hire Agreement. Participants on standard schemes tend to save between 25% and 35% when using their recommended ownership option.
