Evans Cycles will be on campus on Tuesday October 11 from 12-2 on the Allerton Concourse (upper level) to provide information on the Cycle to Work Scheme – the current window for which to apply is open until November 4.
The scheme, which was launched at the start of September, features the University purchasing a cycle for an employees to use for their commute to work.
In exchange for the provision of the cycle, participating employees agree to a reduction in salary to cover the hire charge each month, repaying part of the initial cost to the University and benefiting from tax and National Insurance savings via the salary sacrifice arrangement.
At the end of the hire period, the employee can then agree to take ownership of the bike and equipment with a final market value payment.
Evans will be answering your questions and providing advice on which bike would be most suitable for your journey to the University and showcasing a range of cycles and equipment that they have on offer. Last month Evans had a stand in the Maxwell Building which was particularly popular with many people having signed up the scheme and are now cycling to work.
