E-Bikes are the business

From cycle to work schemes, to bike leasing, and cargo bikes for last mile delivery – we can provide you with all sorts of sustainable business bike solutions.

Cycle to Work

These government initiatives allow your employees to get a brand new bike (and accessories) tax free. All with the aim of encouraging more people to start cycling to work.

Offering this eco-friendly work benefit can help you tick boxes for both Environmental and Social aspects of your company’s ESG goals.

Ribble Valley E-Bikes makes the process simple and straightforward, representing all of the main scheme providers, including Cyclescheme; Bike2Work; GCI; and Cycle2Work (Halfords).

There’s no cost to you, and minimal admin set up (this is handled by the scheme providers).

Offering tax-free bikes to employees is a great company benefit AND it creates a positive brand image – appealing to ethically minded customers.

Bike leasing with BikeFlex

Bikeflex is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and operates in a similar way to a company car salary sacrifice scheme. Many of the leading e-bike brands are already on board with Bikeflex – including Volt, Velo de Ville and Advanced.

Bikeflex offers clear cut benefits for both employees and employers.

How does it work?

The e-bike is leased by the company, with the cost deducted from the employee’s gross salary. The employee then pays tax and National Insurance (NIC) based on the revised salary – reducing the amount of income tax and NIC they pay.

Employers benefit from reduced Class 1 NIC payable on the employee’s salary, which more than covers the cost of the interest charged on the lease.

Riders get a new bike every two years, with no deposit required and no need to sell their current bike. The monthly fee includes cycle insurance and servicing at one of the scheme’s regional service centres. (Ideally Ribble valley E-Bikes but that’s up to you!)

Cycle accessories like helmets, locks and waterproofs can be included within the lease (up to 20% of the total value) and there’s an option to trade up to a new bike after just a year.
