Eligibility to join Cycle+

There are a number of criteria staff must meet in order to be eligible to join:

  • You should have a minimum of 6 months service with the University
  • Your employment contract must cover the period of the 12 month salary sacrifice scheme
  • You should be 18 years or over
  • Pay tax through PAYE
  • Your salary, net of the Cycle+ deduction, remains at or above the national minimum wage

Please note that the bicycle must be used for travelling to and from work for at least 50% of the time it is in use, in order to benefit from the tax and National Insurance exemption. This can be a journey in whole, or in part e.g. to the train station, or between offices

If you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact ext 3027 for advise, particularly if you are already on Pensions+ or participate in the Childcare voucher scheme.
