Buy a Bike

The Cycle2Work scheme is a great Government tax break created to help employees acquire a bike and safety accessories for cycling to work.

As an employee of the University of Lincoln you are able to participate in the Halfords Cycle2Work scheme. It’s really simple to join and you could save up to 42% on a brand new bike and safety accessories as you don’t have to pay any tax or National Insurance.

The University can purchase a brand new bike and safety accessories on your behalf up to the value of £1000 tax free! This will then be paid directly from your salary over the period of 12 months – this is known as a salary sacrifice. After the 12 months the ownership of the bike and any accessories will be transferred by the university to you.
