    Cycle to Work Schemes

    It’s official. The government wants you to ride your bikes to work!

    Save up to 42% off your bike      Pay off the bike over 12 months


    Swift supports the 4 major independent Cycle to Work administrators. If your firm is signed up with one of these then you can buy a bike through us tax free:





    Cyclescheme is the UK’s number one administrator for the Government's Green Transport Plan Initiative. Cyclescheme offers the most admin-friendly scheme for employers and the greatest choice of bikes and equipment for employees. Cyclescheme is partnered with Swift Cycles, so if you are looking for a new bike and want to save some money give us a call on 0207 377 0502 for further details.

    Step 1. Once an employer has entered into a contract with Cyclescheme (employers can sign up via this website) any employees wishing to participate need to visit a Cyclescheme Partner Shop to choose the bike and, if required, safety equipment. Find participating bike shops using the search on this website.

    Step 2. Employees then apply for a Cyclescheme Certificate by finding out their Cyclescheme Employer Code and entering the information provided by the bike shop online. The employee will usually sign an online Hire Agreement at this time.

    Step 3. If the employer approves their application they will countersign the Hire Agreement and pay Cyclescheme for the full retail price of the bike and equipment.

    Step 4. Cyclescheme will then issue a Certificate to either the employee or the employer, wherever is requested.

    Step 5. The Certificate is then redeemed in the bike shop and exchanged for the bike package. Salary sacrifice then commences over the hire period (usually 12 months).

    Step 6. At the end of the hire period the owner of the bike may choose to offer the employee ownership of the bike for a full market value.

    Cyclescheme Vouchers with Sale Bikes

    Swift are well known for offering some of the best deals around on road bikes. In fact we are never beaten on sale bikes…just ask.

    However, because we pay the Cycle To Work Schemes an administration fee for their efforts (somebody has to pay) we might not be able to offer the full sale discount. It’s on a case by case basis so the best way to find out is just to give us a call!
