Cycle to Work Scheme is back for the summer!

Due to popular demand and to coincide with national Bike Week 2012, a short summer application window for the University’s Cycle to Work Scheme will be open from Monday 11 June to Friday 22 June.

As part of our commitment to encourage sustainable methods of travel, the scheme provides staff with the use of a bike and safety equipment. There is also a financial incentive as the initiative is an HM Revenue and Customs-approved salary sacrifice scheme, meaning there are significant tax and National Insurance savings available.


Many staff have already taken advantage of the scheme and are keen to share the benefits.

Speaking of the Cycle to Work benefits Mark Shepherd, Programme Director from the School of the Built Environment, said: “I bought a bike through the Scheme last October and it was a quick, painless process where I was able to get a really comfortable, convenient new bike. In fact, I have enjoyed cycling to work so much I have cancelled my car park permit altogether and have not brought the car since”.
