The Cycle Scheme is now closed and will reopen in September 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

Once authorised, you will be issued with a letter of collection voucher for your bike and equipment which is valid for 3 months. Salary deductions will start in April for 12 months, regardless of when you spend your voucher.

Due to government guidelines, the bike shops are currently closed, however if you have applied through Halfords you can spend your voucher online. If you have been unable to spend your voucher within the 3 month period, you will be able to extend it by calling Sodexo on 01908 303 498.

There will be another opportunity to join the cycle to work scheme in September.

Are you considering a healthier, more sustainable way of travelling?

If so then the cycle to work scheme may be just what you are looking for!

What is the scheme?

Cycle to work allows you to lease a bike and cycling safety equipment for commuting, work related activities and leisure to the value of between £100 and £2000.

The cost of this will be deducted from your salary over a 12 month period. At the end of the lease agreement, the Council may give you the opportunity to take ownership of the cycle at fair market value in accordance with HMRC guidance in place at that time.

As with other salary sacrifice arrangements, those who participate in the scheme will make Tax and National Insurance savings.

After your application has been approved, your Letter of Collection (LOC) will be emailed if you have provided Sodexo with your email address or posted to your home address around 2-3 weeks after the scheme closes.

Important information

  • The scheme will run for 12 months and the first deduction from salary will be made on the first available pay date after your application has been approved by HR.
