The Government’s cycle to work scheme allows employers to loan bicycle and bicycle safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. The scheme is one of the many ways in which the Government is supporting active travel choices, as set out in the 2017 Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy. The Department has produced guidance, which it plans to update shortly, to encourage employers to take advantage of the scheme, but it has no plans to expand it to include running equipment.
