Cycle To Work

The Cycle to Work scheme is a government initiative that allows you to get a brand new bike and safety equipment for your commute to work – all tax-free!

Cycle-to-work schemes can sound a bit faffy and complicated but they aren't really. Your employer and us do the complicated stuff! You just enjoy choosing and then riding your new bicycle.

Save Between 25-42% on a New Bike!

Just think of it like this: you’ve got up to £1,000 to spend; how will you make the most of it?

Merlin Cycles are members of various cycle-to-work schemes which allow you to purchase a bike tax free. Contact your employer first to see what scheme(s) they use, then give us a call - 01772 432431 - or email us and we can arrange to quote and forward you the necessary information.

We currently accept applications from the following schemes:

We can offer specialist advice on the right bike for your needs, along with the recommended accessories such as lights, helmets and locks to keep you and your bike safe.

We charge an admin fee of 10% on all bikes and accessories purchased through cycle-to-work schemes.This amount needs to be paid separately to your scheme voucher.

To proceed with the application you will need our shop code which is merlincy along with a copy of the goods that you would like to purchase to give to your employer.

Usually if you add the items to your basket and then print our the basket page, that will act as your quote. Your employer can then send this off to the relevant cycle-to-work scheme who will then provide you with either an e-voucher (which will need to be e-mailed to us along with a copy of your order) or a postal voucher which will need to be posted to us.
