Testimonials

Merseytravel-bike-to-work

You have provided an excellent service and I really can’t fault it. Helpful, knowledgeable staff who go out of their way to answer any question or accommodate any request. We’ve had about 50 applications to you now and they’ve all gone through without a hitch, but with many satisfied staff!

Anthony Piccaro - Merseytravel
Rathbone-Perception-bike-to-work

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.  

Tom Watts - RPI Media
expeditors-bike-to-work

We have been with the Bike 2 Work Scheme for over a year and have a good number of our staff obtaining bikes through the scheme. Bike 2 Work offer a high level of service and are efficient in getting the contracts and vouchers sent out. Emails sent regarding questions or queries are always responded to speedily and the Bike 2 Work employers are very knowledgeable on the scheme.

Wendy Peaks - Expeditors
Bright-Purple-bike-to-work

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.

Nick Price - CEO - Bright Purple Resourcing
Promart-bike-to-work

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.

Peter Langton
Aldi-bike-to-work

ALDI would recommend Bike 2 Work Scheme to any employer. We have found the service provided by the team at Bike 2 Work Scheme to be professional, speedy and friendly. A number of our staff have already purchased bikes through the scheme since our registration 5 months ago, and we predict many more will take advantage of this salary sacrifice in the upcoming months

Kez Ruffles
Abbey-bike-to-work

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.

Alan Sutton
