Help to get you started Help to get you started

The Cycle to Work scheme allows employees who want to start cycling to work to borrow up to £1000 to buy a bike and cycling safety equipment.

Eligible employees simply choose the bike and safety gear they need from one of our local partners suppliers and then UEA will purchase that package and hire it back to you for a period of 12 months:

  • The money you pay will come directly out of your salary, before tax and national insurance are calculated thereby saving you money.
  • At the end of 12 months UEA will offer to sell the cycle and associated equipment to you at an agreed rate.

The scheme is part of a government-backed system introduced under the Green Transport Plan. For full information including terms & conditions visit UEA's Finance pages for staff.
