Encouraging cycling within your business can have a number of positive benefits. Apart from the health aspects, employees who cycle to work:

  • May be more motivated
  • Can help to reduce pressure on car parking and lower your business travel expenditure
  • May mean fewer employee sick days as regular cyclists are often fitter than those who don't

Santander Cycles business accounts

Give your organisation unlimited access to our Cycle Hire scheme. You can use the bikes for business travel or commuting, depending on the individual needs of your employees and your business. Businesses can purchase between 5 and 20 pooled keys for £90 each. Each one gives you unlimited bike access for a year, for all journeys of up to 30 minutes. The Santander Cycles website makes it easy to manage your account online with its business accounts reporting tool. Find out more about Santander business accounts.

Tax savings on bikes

Salary sacrifice tax breaks can be offered as a standard benefit to help employees with affordable cycling equipment.

A number of cycle suppliers have formed the Cycle to Work Alliance to provide guidance on setting up a salary sacrifice scheme based on the experience of others.
