Need (or just really want) a new bike? We have several ways to pay to make it that little bit easier for you.
Of course, you can pay in full at the time of purchase. If that’s easiest for you, that’s great.
However, if you want to spread the cost (or even save yourself some money), here are three other ways to pay:
1. Cycle to Work
A Cycle to Work scheme is a great way of getting saving up to 42% off the price of your bike. Plus you’ll be able to spread the cost over an agreed term e.g. 12 months.
Our scheme is called Bike to Work but we also accept vouchers for Cyclescheme, Bike2Work, Cycleplus, Salary Exchange and Green Commute Initiative. If your employer hasn’t signed up to any Cycle to Work scheme, send them this link so you (and all your colleagues) can save.
2. Interest Free Credit
Instead of having to pay for your new bike and cycling kit all at once, you can spread the cost with 0% interest (that means there is no extra cost for spreading the cost). Depending on how much you’re spending, you can take up to 24 months to pay back the cost of your purchase without having to pay anything extra.
It doesn’t take long to apply and you can do it online, in store or by phone.
3. Ebike Loan
If you’re in Scotland and are buying an electric bike, the Energy Saving Trust is offering an interest free loan. You can borrow up to £6,000 per household with a repayment period of four years.
Applications for this electric bike loan are made directly to the Energy Saving Trust.
