Staying active at Work - Cycle to Work Scheme

If you travel for at least part of your journey to work by bike, take a look at the cycle to work vouchers which are on offer. It allows you to make significant savings on the purchase of bicycles by paying monthly through your salary.

For more information take a look at the FAQs or cycle scheme flow chart.

*Please note that although the Cycle Scheme no longer has a financial limit, NWAS is unable to support applications of over £1000 for the scheme. You will need to take this into account when placing your order.
