Cycle to Work Scheme

A.F. Blakemore Cycle to Work Scheme

Save up to 42% on a new bike and accessories


What is Cycle to Work? 

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

You can choose from thousands of bikes available at Halfords stores, or one of their 700+ partnered independent bike retailers. 

Cycle to Work is a government-approved salary sacrifice initiative enabling you to hire a bike and cycle safety accessories from your employer for the purpose of cycling to work.  The hire is free of tax and national insurance contributions. 

You can hire a brand new bike and equipment up to the value of £1,000, which you will make payments for via your salary. 

Because the payments will be deducted from your gross salary, you will make savings of either 32% or 42%, depending on whether you are a standard rate or higher rate tax payer.  

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

How much can I save
