It was the 10th Anniversary of Cycle to Work Day on Thursday 4th August 2022, a day established by Cyclescheme.
The cycle to work scheme is an initiative under the Government’s Green Transport Plan and is an employee benefit that can save you between 26-40% on a bike and accessories. It enables you to buy a new bike and pay through salary sacrifice and because you pay for it from your gross pay, you save tax and national insurance on the monthly payment. Ellis Bates is proud to offer this scheme as part of our company benefits.
Cycling to work is a great way to enhance your mental and physical wellbeing, as well as being environmentally friendly. With the cost-of-living crisis encouraging us all to re-evaluate our spending, commuting via bike can be cost effective and rewarding.
Angela from our Newcastle office took part in the Cycle to Work Day. She didn’t get any pictures of herself but took some shots of the lovely scenery along the way.
