Cycle to work schemes

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.
