The Government’s Cycle to Work scheme allows employers to loan bicycle and bicycle safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. The Department has produced guidelines to encourage employers to take advantage of this scheme.

The Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in April 2017, sets out the other steps the Government is taking to support cycling, and the funding available to improve local cycling provisions, provide safer cycle routes and increase cycle parking facilities.
