Cycle to work scheme

Sustainable And Eco-Friendly

D&D Electric is entirely committed to promoting a sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle. That’s why we have partnered with a number of cycle to work schemes. These are designed to encourage employees to adopt a healthier and more environmentally conscious mode of transportation by offering them the opportunity to purchase bicycles and related equipment at discounted rates.

By partnering with these schemes, we enable our customers to make the switch to cycling for their daily commute, contributing to reduced carbon emissions and improved overall well-being. We’re committed to supporting initiatives that align with our values of sustainability and corporate responsibility, making it easier for individuals to embrace a greener and more active lifestyle.

So, whether you’re an employer looking to offer this benefit to your staff or an employee seeking a more sustainable commute, D&D Electric is here to help you pedal towards a brighter, cleaner future.

What Is the Cycle to Work Scheme?

The Cycle to Work Scheme, often abbreviated as C2W, is a government-backed initiative designed to encourage employees to adopt cycling (and the use of ebikes) as a means of commuting to work. It was introduced to combat congestion, reduce carbon emissions, and promote healthier lifestyles among the workforce.

Cycle to work schemes allow employees to make tax-free purchases, saving up to 42%, by paying for the eBike and accessories out of their pre-tax salary. Better still, being a salary sacrifice scheme, the payments are taken out of an employee’s salary over an extended period (usually 12 months) meaning they also get to spread the cost.

How Does the Cycle to Work Scheme Work?

If you think the Cycle to Work Scheme could work for you, then you can find out here if you meet the criteria. Firstly, you’ll need to be on some form of employment contract, and you must be prepared to give up a portion of your salary to cover the cost of the ebike and any ebike accessories you might need (such as a helmet and a lock). Your employer must be willing to participate in the scheme (and thankfully most are), and will be responsible for signing up with a Cycle to Work provider. If your employer is registered with a cycle to work provider, or agrees to register with one, you’re almost there. Read our FAQ, below, to find out how it all works.

Employees are free to select an ebike and any necessary equipment, such as helmets, lights, locks, and panniers, up to a specified value. The choice of equipment is essential, as it should be primarily for commuting purposes.

Employees enter into a salary sacrifice agreement with their employer, agreeing to have a portion of their pre-tax salary deducted to cover the cost of the chosen bicycle and accessories. This deduction is typically made over a set period, typically 12 to 18 months.

Employers play a crucial role in the Cycle to Work Scheme. They are responsible for setting up an agreement with a Cycle to Work provider and deducting the agreed amount from your salary. Once you’ve chosen the ebike you want, your employer will then order the ebike and accessories through the Cycle to Work provider.

The Cycle to Work Scheme provides employees with significant financial benefits. By sacrificing a portion of their salary, they can save on the cost of ebikes, reduce commuting costs, make tax savings, improve their health and wellbeing, and get fitter. Better still, employees who use the Cycle to Work Scheme avoid ULEZ charges and contribute to a greener, more sustainable environment.

How Can I Buy a D&D Electric Ebike on a Cycle to Work Scheme?

We partner with two of the UK’s leading Cycle to Work providers – Bike2Work and The Green Commute Initiative. Buying an ebike through either provider is simple.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Speak to your employer and ask if it’s already registered with a Cycle to Work provider. If it’s not, ask it to register with Bike2Work or The Green Commute Initiative.
  2. Find the right D&D Electric eBike and the accessories you need for your commute. Let your employer know what ebike and accessories you’ve chosen, and sign the salary sacrifice agreement with your employer.
  3. Your employer buys the ebike and we deliver it to you, usually the next working day.
