ST3IKE Electric Bikes


The Cycle To Work Scheme is a government-backed initiative and an employee benefit scheme that enables employees to hire cycles for active travel and/or cyclist’s safety equipment from the employer, or from a third party, in return for a deduction from their earnings known as salary sacrifice which can result in significant savings on the overall cost.

In a nutshell: The employer pays for the employee’s bike, the employer reimburses the VAT, and your employees pay you back from their gross pay rather than their net pay. As a result, you incur no financial loss while the employee benefits.


The cycle to work scheme allows employees to obtain commuter bikes and cycling accessories through their employer, whilst spreading the cost over 12 months and making unbeatable savings through a tax break.
The Department of Transportation‘s website can be found here.


The employer registers with a Cycle To Work scheme. Once registered they will be able to access free of charge promotional resources to help them publicise their exciting new employee benefit.


The employee visits ST3IKE to decide what they want; they then apply via the Cyclescheme website. The employer reviews their request and if they are eligible pays for the equipment.


The employee receives their bike and starts their salary repayments. After 12 months the employer will have recovered their costs and generated up to 13.8% in savings. The employee will be given their ownership options.


Cyclescheme saves you 25-39% on a bike and accessories. You pay nothing upfront and the payments are taken tax efficiently from your salary by your employer. There is a 3-7% ownership fee you must pay at the end of your purchase.

Green Commute Initiative’s scheme has no £1,000 limit and no scheme exit fees. You can save from 32-47% (depending on your tax rate). Pay monthly through salary sacrifice with no added interest. Salary sacrifice periods can be from 12-60 months.
