The Government’s guidance on the Cycle to Work scheme, which is available online via GOV.UK, makes clear that electrically assisted pedal cycles can be purchased under the scheme. Sales of electrically assisted pedal cycles have risen significantly in recent years and their prices have dropped, potentially making them more likely to be purchased under the scheme. The Department does not hold data on the types of bicycle purchased under the scheme, however, and has made no formal assessment of this.
