The Cycle to Work Scheme: Your Gateway to an Affordable New Bike at Bike Barn

Updated: Sep 6

In an era where sustainability and health are at the forefront of global discussions, cycling emerges as a champion of both. The "cycle to work" scheme, a government-backed initiative, has gained traction as an affordable, eco-conscious way to commute. At Bike Barn, we're thrilled to be part of this movement, offering a diverse range of bikes that cater to this scheme.

Understanding the Cycle to Work Scheme

The cycle-to-work scheme is more than just a program; it's a lifestyle shift. Here's why it's making waves:

  1. Environmental Impact: Cycling is a zero-emission mode of transport. By choosing to cycle, you contribute to a decrease in air pollution, a reduction in traffic congestion, and a smaller carbon footprint.

  2. Physical and Mental Health Benefits: Regular cycling can improve cardiovascular health, increase muscle strength, and enhance mental well-being. It's a natural stress reliever and a great way to start and end your workday.

  3. Economic Savings: Beyond the obvious savings on fuel or public transport fares, the cycle-to-work scheme allows employees to use bikes and cycling equipment tax-free. This can lead to up to 42% savings on the total cost.
