Encouraging cycling within your business can have a number of positive benefits. Apart from the health aspects, employees who cycle to work:
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 buy 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 lets you manage your account online with its business accounts reporting tool. Find out more about Santander business accounts.
You can offer salary sacrifice tax breaks as a standard benefit to help employees with affordable cycling equipment.
The Department for Transport has guidance on setting up a Cycle to Work salary sacrifice scheme.
