We love cyclists!
We encourage staff to take sustainable transport to work, as well as whilst they are at work. To help you get on your bike – we have a number of incentives including:
- Cycle to work scheme – choose a bike from an approved supplier and pay the cost back through deductions from your gross salary, which means you save on tax and National Insurance. Payments are spread over a 12-month period.
- Regular Dr Bike sessions – trained mechanics regularly come to the Council campus (or around Hackney) to help you get your bike road-worthy with a free bike check service.
- We have a try before you buy cycle loan scheme – you can borrow a bike, lights, panniers, helmet and lock for a month for just £10. When the month is over, we’ll help you find a cheap bike to buy.
- Free cycle training – ranging from tailored one-to-one lessons with instructors to advanced cycle skills lessons and led tours to get you road confident.
