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 a cost-effective way to get new cycling equipment.

The scheme is run via a salary sacrifice, meaning that you won’t pay tax or national insurance – this saves you between 32% and 42% on your new bike and accessories.

This reduced cost is simply deducted out of your payslip over 12 months, so there’s no need to worry about large one-off costs.

You can apply for anything between £100 and £1,000, which means you could save up to £320 on a new bike and accessories!

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.
