Take a boring, lifeless commute and make it great.

Fancy putting a spring in your step now the sun has come out of hiding? How about trading that stuffy bus ride to work for a fresh, warm breeze running through your hair? How about taking the scenic route instead of the smoky route? Not to mention the money you could save on travel costs!

Bike 2 Work Scheme wants you to join the ever growing number of cyclists pedalling in to work every morning.

Steve Burt from Medway has almost earned pro status among his fellow commuters. He cycles almost five hours a day on his route to and from work at AmicusHorizon in Kent. He says he’s enjoyed being so active but also mentioned how surprised he was at the number of other cyclists he’d got pally with since he started commuting by bike. His top tip for new commuters was to plan your route carefully and do everything you can to take in and enjoy your surroundings.

Another happy Bike 2 Work commuter is Peter Harris from Crosby, Liverpool. He now cycles an hour to work at Shop Direct Group every day after a friend recommended the scheme to him. He told us that taking to the saddle has significantly improved his general wellbeing and fitness. He recommends the Bike 2 Work Scheme to everybody and tips us to always research into your bike to find what suits you, oh, and buy a decent lock! Thanks Pete!

Whether you’re working towards that beach body or simply want to improve your lifestyle, there’s no better way to get to work, we promise!

With the UK now considered the most obese nation in Europe, and many worryingly piling on the weight, there’s no better time to get yourself a new pair of wheels! So instead of burning some CO2, why not burn some calories? Whilst saving up to 42% on the costs of bikes and equipment? You’ll be happier, healthier and more motivated, the environment will love you for it too!

    One of the things that attracted us to Bike 2 Work Scheme was the number of cycle shops available enabling our employees to access one near them, which appears to have encouraged take up of the scheme. Having circulated the leaflets provided, there has been a lot of interest once people could see how easy and financially advantageous it was. All our dealings with the scheme have been very professionally handled, all our queries answered, and paperwork dealt with speedily. We would recommend Bike 2 Work to any employer.

    I only heard about Bike 2 Work Scheme when I visited my local cycle shop. It was great to hear that the government actually had a scheme in place which made cycling cost effective for the employee, whilst promoting a healthier lifestyle. Setting up the scheme was extremely easy, they made sure that we had everything that we required and was always on standby to answer any questions. I would happily recommend the Bike 2 Work Scheme to any employer.

    A number of my team had been suggesting they were keen to get on their bike, get fit and try to get out of using public transport and mentioned the Bike2Work scheme. I contacted the team at Bike2Work and they made it very simple for Bright Purple to get engaged, explaining everything required of us to get going. As a company we are keen to support green issues and want to do our bit for the environment, so getting the team on 2 wheels is a good start. Thank you Bike2Work - great idea.

    I was given the task of getting our company Abbey Logistics Group on the Bike 2 Work Scheme, I looked around and researched a number of schemes but thought that the Bike 2 Work Scheme was the best. I still feel I made the correct choice for a number of reasons. The amount of partner shops I found was fantastic and the speedy response from the scheme is second to none just to name a couple. May I take a moment to say a big thank you to the Bike 2 Work Scheme for helping our company to a greener future.
