Ask your employer whether they are signed up to the Cycle to Work scheme. The scheme enables employees to purchase a bike through salary sacrifice, so you pay off the cost over a 12 month period and as an added bonus you won’t pay tax or NI contributions on the cost of the bike, saving you up to 45%.
