E-Bikes available on Cyclescheme | Cycle to Work

Cycling is the ideal mode of transportation because it is healthy, inexpensive, and pleasant. It's much better with e-bikes, which provide exactly the proper amount of assistance. An e-bike is a simple and adaptable tool that can help coworkers get to work faster, ride for longer, and reach the top of local peaks faster. They deliver all of the excitement of riding while requiring less effort.

Road Bikes

Road bikes are usually relatively light, which makes them efficient, and they have narrow tyres and wheels, which aid in speed. A drop handlebar is standard on most road bikes for a more aerodynamic riding position.

Hybrid Bikes

A road bike has dropped handlebars, little suspension, and small, slick tyres, whereas a mountain bike has the opposite characteristics. Heavier, with flat, wide handlebars and thick, robust tyres that can handle any terrain.

Folding Bikes

Standard bicycles may be allowed on some kinds of public transportation, but they are rarely greeted warmly. It's probably not worth the risk of missing the next train because some of the busiest commuter trains barely have room for two bicycles.

How to get an e-bike on Cyclescheme

An e-bike is the answer if you need some more energy for your commute to work. There are, however, additional considerations when compared to a regular bike.

Although an e-bike has a motor, it is not a motorcycle.
An e-bike is an electrically assisted pedal cycle (EAPC), and as long as it fits specific requirements, it can be ridden everywhere a bicycle is permitted.
There is no car excise duty (sometimes known as "road tax"), no vehicle registration, and no need for a driver's licence.
Insurance for both you and the bike, as well as a helmet, are optional.
To ride one, you must be 14 years old or older - that's it.

So, what are the requirements for electric bicycles?
The maximum motor-assisted speed of the e-bike cannot exceed 25 km/h (15.5mph).
This implies that if you travel any faster, the motor will stop out, leaving you to ride solely on muscular strength.
Furthermore, the motor's maximum sustained output is limited to 250 Watts.
Most EAPC-compliant e-bikes are referred to as 'pedelecs,' because they only assist you when you pedal.

There are other throttle-type e-bikes that can be powered without pedalling, although they are more difficult to use.
New throttle models must have 'type approval' and display a plate with the type approval number, even if they fulfil the EAPC speed and power criteria.
You also won't gain any of the benefits of cycling's exercise if you don't pedal.

Getting an electric bike on Cyclescheme

Acquiring an e-bike on Cyclescheme is similar to getting a regular bicycle in most ways.
You locate local Cyclescheme Retailer, select the e-bike that best suits your needs and commute, and submit a Certificate request.

The value of your Cyclescheme Certificate cannot exceed your scheme limit, which is the most significant component.
This is determined by your workplace; to find out what your employer's limit is, use the Cyclescheme calculator (along with your employer's name/code).

I've been putting the scheme off for years and don't really know why. It was simple to complete and a bike was delivered quickly and easily.

In 2016 did my first voucher, it was fast and no issues whatsoever. Now did my second voucher from different company, and now it’s been almost a month. Find out that this long waiting time, is not a cyclescheme fault.
Hr didn’t send my request to my manager, straight away when receive. But after spoken to him, he sorted it out in couple of hours. Now has been 4 days after that and hopefully will get it soon.
Thanks again Cyclescheme for this amazing opportunity.

This is a good scheme to make cycling affordable. You also don't have to get a bike you can use it for cloths and accessories.
