Cycle to Work

What is Cycle to Work? 

A.F. Blakemore has partnered with Halfords to offer employees a Cycle to Work scheme. 

Cycle2Work is a great employee benefit that offers the most cost-effective way to get new cycling equipment.

The scheme is run via a salary sacrifice, meaning you won’t pay tax or national insurance. This saves you between 33.25% and 48.25% on your new bike and accessories. This reduced cost is simply deducted out of your payslip over 18 months, so there is no need to worry about large one-off costs.

You can apply for anything between £100 and £2,000. 

The amount you can spend will be determined by A.F. Blakemore at the point of approval. 

You can choose your new bike and accessories from hundreds of brands in-store or online from Halfords, Tredz or one of the independent shops that the scheme works with.
