Cycle Assist Staff Take Advantage of CycleScheme

With the recent Olympic and Tour de France cycling successes from Team GB’s Victoria Pendleton and Bradley Wiggins, and now a phenomenal 11th Olympic Gold for Paralympic cyclist Sarah Storey, it seems cycling is seeing a new boom, and the fever has overtaken us here at Cycle Assist too!

3 more members of staff have signed up through Cyclescheme for the Bike to Work scheme – a HMRC-approved employee benefit which has been designed to allow organisations to offer employees the opportunity to purchase a shiny new bike and equipment worth up to £1000. Operated as a salary sacrifice scheme, employees make tax and National Insurance savings as well as saving up to 50% on new bicycles and equipment.

Joanne W, Sharon and Joanne B have taken delivery of their gleaming new bikes and are embarking on a drive to not only improve their fitness levels, but to also help reduce congestion and parking issues, a bit of a problem at the company’s offices in Macclesfield.

We look forward to seeing you out and about on the roads of Macclesfield girls, and make sure you read our road cycling safety tips first!
