Cycle to Work leaflet
These Cycle to Work tips were collated by members and used on our Cycle to Work Day event at John Lewis in 2019. We are working on developing them into a bigger guide to cycling which can be used by employers across Greater Cambridge.

Buying a bike tax-free through your employer
In order to encourage cycling, the Government allows employers to operate a scheme whereby employees can buy a bike via a regular salary deduction. This means the cost is spread over a period, and more importantly the employee doesn’t have to pay tax.
For more details, see the Cyclescheme website.
