Cycle to work

Workplace Bikes can save you money on the retail cost of a new bike.  ​

The lease scheme helps you:

  • ​Save money on travelling costs
  • Improve your health and fitness
  • Reduce carbon emissions
  • Protect and preserve the environment

Savings are through tax and national insurance, providing between 30% to 40% savings over the retail cost of a new bike. Halfords also provide a further 5% off the recommended retail price.   Halfords can help source any bike up to a value of £1,500 through their own stores and an extensive network of independent bike stores.

To take part you must ensure that you meet certain conditions:

  • You must be paying PAYE tax.​
  • Deductions made through salary sacrifice should not take your wage to  below the national minimum wage.
  • You must have a contract with Glasgow Life  that does not end during the hire period.  The hire period is 18 months.
  • Registering is a legally binding agreement. You are agreeing to cycle for a minimum of 50% of your commute. Failure to do so could be breach of contract rendering deduction not eligible for tax and NI relief.
  • During the lease period the cycle remains the property of Glasgow Life.
  • It is the end users responsibility to ensure the cycle is covered via their insurance policy.

Typically an application will take 10 working days from point of electronically signing the online form.
