The Cycle to Work scheme can already be used to assist with the purchase of electrically assisted pedal cycles, and 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 not made any formal assessment of the number of electrically assisted pedal cycles which have been purchased under the scheme.
