The Bike to work scheme is an initiative by the Irish government designed to encourage more people to cycle to work.
To make sure individuals have access to appropriate bike and bicycle safety equipment this scheme means an employer pays for the beneficiary of the scheme’s bicycle.
The cost of the bike is then taken in instalments from the employee's pay. Best of all these repayments are not subject toTax, PRSI, or USC.
Through this scheme, an employer can help an individual get a standard bike worth up to €1250 or an electric bike worth up to €1500.

Are employers obligated to offer the bike to work scheme?
No, employers are not obligated to provide the cycle to work scheme. Please speak to your HR department or HR representative to make sure your employer offers the scheme.

Unfortunately not. This is against the revenue’s rules. We recommend always spending the full amount you apply for by making up the difference with essential bicycle safety equipment.
