How it works with Cycle Solutions
Outlet ebikes are only available through Green Commute Initiative and Cyclescheme
*Please note that outlet ebikes are only available through the Green Commute Initiative and Cyclescheme. The reason that we cannot sell outlet ebikes through Cycle Solutions is that each scheme provider charges us an admin fee per application (which is a % of the total value of your application), Cycle Solutions charges the highest fee (at 12%). For discounted outlet bikes we cannot absorb the cost of the admin fee for Cycle Solutions as this would mean we were selling at a loss.
1. Choose your ebike & accessories, then request a quote from us
Choose your ebike colour, and any accessories that you’d like to add.
Email us at [email protected] with the following details to request a quotation:
– Your ebike colour
– Your chosen accessories
– Your Cycle to Work scheme provider
– Your full details (including first name, last name, shipping address, mobile phone number and your employer’s company name)
We’ll then get back to you with a quotation so that you can start your application.
2. Start your Cycle to Work application
Once you’ve received your quotation from us, you can start your application.
You can use their calculator here to work out how much you’ll save on your ebike.
3. Receive your Letter of Collection
Once your application has been approved you’ll receive a Letter of Collection from Cycle Solutions.
Please send this to [email protected] so that we can start preparing your order.
4. Start paying for your ebike in monthly instalments (tax free!)
Here’s when you start saving!
Once your Cycle Solutions letter of collection has been processed, you’ll start making monthly payments to your employer. These payments are deducted from your salary before tax, which is why this is known as a salary sacrifice scheme.
With Cycle Solutions, your payment period is typically 12-18 months. During this payment period, Cycle Solutions technically owns the bike and you rent it from them.
What happens after the rental period?
Once the rental period is up you have three options to choose from:
1. Zero cost extended hire
You can sign up to an extended rental agreement. You will have nothing further to pay and the ownership will automatically transfer to you after the extended rental period finishes.
2. Immediate ownership for fair market value
Take ownership of your FLIT-16 immediately by paying Cycle Solutions the market value (e.g. for a one year repayment period this would be 25% of the value of the FLIT-16 in accordance with HMRC requirements).
You can arrange for Cycle Solutions to collect your FLIT-16 and return it.
