The Cycle to Work Alliance is a policy coalition of five of the leading providers of the cycle to work scheme, including Cyclescheme, Cycle Solutions, Evans Cycles, Halfords, and Vivup.

We have come together to promote the benefits of cycling to work in terms of health, the environment and employee engagement, and to increase awareness of the contribution the scheme makes.

The scheme helps increase the number of people making the journey to work by bike. More people cycling to work will improve public health, contribute to a more sustainable transport system, and make people more productive once they get to work.


  • 6 in 10 scheme users would drive to work if they didn’t use the scheme

  • Since joining, 2 out of 3 scheme users are cycling more than they were before

  • 3 in 4 scheme users join the scheme to help improve their mental wellbeing

  • 2 in 3 employers offering the scheme said their main reason for doing so was to improve staff wellbeing by encourage active travel

  • 8 in 10 employers said the Cycle to Work scheme was either an important or very important benefit to their employees


“For employees who want to start to cycle to work, but don’t have a bike right now, the popular Cycle to Work scheme already allows employees to save between 25-39% of the cost of a new bike, or indeed an electric bike. There’s been a huge increase in people using the scheme and we will work with employers to increase uptake even further.”

Grant Shapps Secretary of State for Transport, speaking at the Coronavirus Press Conference, Downing Street 9th May 2020
