The Bike to Work Scheme

Save up to 52% on any bike

The Bike to Work Scheme is a Government run scheme to incentivise cycling and commuting to work.

The Cycle to Work Scheme, also known as the Bike to Work Scheme, is a program initiated by the government to encourage people to commute to work by cycling. The scheme offers a financial incentive for individuals to purchase a bicycle and related accessories.

By participating in the scheme, you can save up to 52% on the cost of a new bike. The scheme works by allowing employers to provide employees with a tax-free loan to purchase a bicycle and accessories up to a certain value. The employee then pays back the loan through salary deductions over a set period of time. By promoting cycling as an alternative means of commuting, the scheme aims to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution while promoting a healthy lifestyle.

You will save your tax rate so between 31% and 52%

Further Info

The Cycle to Work Scheme is designed to promote cycling as a means of commuting to and from work. It offers an incentive to employees by allowing their employer to purchase a bicycle and safety equipment on their behalf, which is not taxable.

The limits on the scheme depend on the type of bicycle purchased, with the maximum being €3,000 for cargo and ecargo bikes, €1,500 for pedelecs and ebikes, and €1,250 for other bikes. The scheme covers new bicycles and pedelecs, cargo and ecargo bicycles, and related safety equipment, such as helmets, lights, and locks. However, it does not cover motorbikes, scooters, mopeds, second-hand bicycles, or associated equipment.

To participate in the scheme, employees need to inquire whether their employer offers it, and what their requirements are, such as the type of bicycle and equipment and from which shop. Payment can be arranged through a 'salary sacrifice' over an agreed period, and the scheme can only be used once every four years for qualifying journeys between an employee's home and normal place of work.
