How does Cyclescheme work?

Get the Cairn gear that suits your ride. Go for a bike, a bike and accessories, or just accessories – it’s your choice. Applying for the scheme is quick and easy.

1. Select Your Package & Apply

Once you have decided which bike and accessories you require, you just need to request your certificate from Cyclescheme here and let them know you’re ready to get your new bike! Use the calculator further down the page to check how much you can save.

Once it’s been approved your certificate will be issued via email to you ready for you to get your Cyclescheme package.

2. Get your bike

Now here comes the exciting part. It’s time to trade your certificate for your Cyclescheme package. Buy on our website, redeem the certificate at checkout and take advantage of home delivery.

Your Hire Agreement kicks in when you receive the bike and you start making impressive tax savings (at least 25%!). For the next 12 months, you’ll pay a fixed amount from your salary every time you’re paid. This is taken from your pre-tax salary and reduces the amount of Income Tax and National Insurance you pay resulting in great savings. For standard rate payers this is 25%, or for higher rate 39%.

3. Choose an ownership option

After 12 months, your company transfers ownership to you for a small one-off fee. If your Cyclescheme package was under £500 you’ll pay just 3% of the original value, or for packages over £500 you’ll pay just 7%. So if you had a package worth £1,000 you’ll pay just £70. And that’s all you need to do!

For the next 36 months, your Cyclescheme package will remain ‘hired’ with no more payday payments to make. At the end of this time, ownership of your package will automatically transfer to you, leaving you to enjoy your bike for many happy years to come!

Cairn Cycles through Cyclescheme, everything you need to know:

What is Cyclescheme?

Cyclescheme is a way to pay for your new Cairn Cycles through a monthly salary sacrifice. The payments are taken directly from your gross salary, whilst also meaning you don’t pay tax, national insurance or interest fees.

How does the scheme work?

Purchasing through Cyclescheme allows you to save between 25% and 39%, offering a tax efficient way to buy your next bike. Once you’ve checked your employer is signed up to Cyclescheme, you can go ahead and ask us for a quote or place an order if you’ve already got a certifcate.

How much can I spend?

Most employers choose not to limit the order value with Cyclescheme. This means you can browse the entire range of bikes, and pair with complimentary accessories. Please check with your employer for any order value limit before applying for your certificate.

Can I add my own funds to the transaction?

You cannot add your own funds to the transaction, this is determined by the guidance from the Department for Transport who have clarified that the entire order value must be included on your certificate and adding funds is not possible.

Can I use my Cyclescheme voucher in conjunction with other offers/discounts?

Cyclescheme vouchers can be redeemed against the product selling price displayed on the website (slash-though prices included).

Please note Cyclescheme vouchers CANNOT be used on conjunction with any discount or promotion codes.

If at any point during these 60 days you wish to return it for a full refund (or a product swap) please fill your details on our Technical Support Page.

Certificate to be approved?

Cyclescheme Certificate?
