At Tyne Cycles you can also buy a bike through one of the various government backed cycle schemes.
Employees can usually save up to 40% on the cost of a bike and their chosen accessories. Most employers usually limit spending to £1000 but this varies. You then pay the bike off over a set period (specified by your employer) of time with payments usually taken each time you receive your wage.
If your employer uses one of the schemes listed below we can help. If the scheme provider your employer uses isn’t listed, get in touch and we will see if we can help.
