Encourage Cycling to Work for Free!

Cycling to work is easy to encourage through the Government’s Bike2Work scheme, which offers employees up to 48 per cent off the cost of a new bike and equipment. Through the scheme, motorists swap their daily commutes from cars to bikes. Employers quickly and easily encourage green, healthy behaviour, and have to pay nothing, as salary sacrifice funds the bicycles. Indeed, as an employer, you’re likely to save money, as it lowers your national insurance contributions by up to 15 per cent.
