Launch of new staff bike scheme

The University has partnered with Green Commute Initiative (GCI) to offer employees the opportunity to pay for a new bike out of their pre-tax income. For most people, this will mean a saving of around a third, and in some cases this could rise to saving almost half the price.

The scheme is available now. Find out how much you could save with GCI’s online calculator

You are able to take advantage of the scheme whether you’re a novice making your first tentative journeys on two wheels, or an experienced cyclist looking to take things to the next level with a better bike. 

Green Commute Initiative is a Social Enterprise with a vision to get commuters out of cars and onto any kind of bike. The dual aim is to improve the individual’s health and wellbeing along with reducing the environmental impact of pollution and congestion from cars.

Alternatively, if you want to own your bike immediately or the GCI is not suitable for you, you may wish to use the University’s Bike Loan Scheme, which is continuing to operate, and includes discount offers of 10% with a number of local bike shops.
