Cycle To Work

Cycle to Work – Green Commute Initiative

Cycles UK accepts Cycle to Work – Green Commute Initiative vouchers in our stores and online. Green Commute Initiative (also known as GCI) is one of the newest cycle to work schemes. It was partly set up to allow more people to buy electric bikes on cycle to work. Many of the older schemes had a £1000 limit and most quality electric bikes don’t start until £1500. Green Commute Initiative closed that gap by allowing cycle to work purchases above the £1000 limit. 

Partly intended to allow electric bike purchases a lot of Green Commute Initiative vouchers we accept are for conventional bikes. At Cycles UK you can use your Green Commute Initiative voucher on bikes from the world’s best brands including Trek, Specialized, Whyte, Cannondale, GT and Raleigh. You can also select safety equipment including helmets, lights and locks to go with your bike.

With most cycle to work schemes, your company has to sign up to the scheme and that’s what you use. Green Commute Initiative allow companies to sign up but they can also do one-off invoices for specific purchases. So if your company cycle to work scheme has a lower limit you may still be able to use Green Commute Initiative to buy an electric bike. 

There are no hidden charges or extra fees when you use a Green Commute Initiative voucher at Cycles UK
