Cycle to Work Day .13th September

As part of it’s strategy to reduce the effects of Nitrogen dioxide and diesel particulates, the government is keen to promote cycling to work. There are very few salary sacrifice schemes permitted by HMRC but purchasing an electric bike tocycle towork is encouraged.

There are several Different Cycle to Work Schemes, all of which save the employee money by allowing an employee to purchase an electric bike by “salary sacrifice”.  This means that the instalment on your bike is deducted from your salary before Tax and National insurance is deducted.

The Green Commute Initiative is an innovative new Cycle to Work scheme regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and  ideal for electric bikes as there is no £1,000 Limit! It offers up to 42% savings on bikes for employees (depending on your tax status) as part of the Government’s Green Transport plan.  There is no necessity for small employers tojoin the scheme and deals can be arranged one at a time. The value of the e-bikes can often can often be financed so there is no impact on the employer’s cash flow. It then becomes a “No Cost Employee Benefit”.  The form can be found on line and completed straight away.   https://greencommuteinitiative.uk/employees/

If your employer is a member of Cycle Scheme, then you can usually apply on line and you do not even have to nominate a retailer or specific electric bike.  Your employer will then be asked to purchase a Certificate of your selected value, usually up to £1000.  Though it is worth enquiring as to your employers maximum amount as, for example the Police scheme is £1500. When you receive the certificate, you can redeem it at Axcess- electric-bikes or PC Tonkin at Bugle, St Austell for your chosen e-bike.    If the bike is over the value of your certificate, you can sometimes top up the value of the payment, but remember the bike does not legally belong to you till you pay the final 7% fee. https://www.cyclescheme.co.uk/get-a-bike/how-it-works

If you commute by bus or walking, an electric bike is an opportunity to adjust your daily routine. Journeys are made much easier due to the uphill assistance provided by the motor meaning that you can enjoy your commute at a relaxed and steady pace. Realistically, you can average 12 -13 mph on an electric bike and arrive without breaking out in a sweat.

With workplace parking charges becoming a reality, the popularity of the electric bike for commuting can only increase.

I bought my bike, the Axcess Eriskay the first week in Jan 2018. I was well looked after by Peter, I knew what I was buying as the previous year I had bought my wife an Axcess Camargue and so I didnt have a problem going back to the same shop to buy mine. Peter and his staff can not be any more helpful in my opinion. If you decide on a bike but want a few cosmetic changes, they are more than happy to oblige, my wife wanted different handlebars and a change of tyre type. Since buying my wifes bike I have also bought maps and pannier bags. I do not have a problem recommending this shop to anyone who requires an electric bike.
Axcess were the nearest specialist supplier of Ebikes, and there web page gave good descriptions. I visited their premises, tried out their folding models around the factory estate and on that basis chose a ELife folding bike as the one best suited to my needs. I have been pleased with the model I chose. - It is of robust construction with front fork suspension and it deals well with farm tracks and forest trails - it folds easily and fits in the back of the car - it shrinks distances compared with my old pedal bike - it has coped with all hills I have so far tried it on - I don't know what its range is (30 miles seems about right for gentle countryside). I had thought that battery capacity would be a limitation, but it is not. It is in fact saddle soreness.
I recently purchased the Axcess Electric Shetland folding bike which fits nicely In the back of my SUV without having to lower the rear seats. It’s an excellent bike and build .. easy to mount and dismount .. perfectly suitable for me as I am now in my mid fifties and appreciate a little assistance nowadays on longer journeys and Inclines , that said It’s a great bike for any adult whatever there age and as they say ... It has the power to get you there and back. I have previously owned two other electric cycles of another brand that were hard work to cycle when the power was off even on the flat. I’m pleased to say that this Is not an Issue with the Axcess Electric Bike that you can pedal with ease If and when the power Is not required ..
