Bike To Work Scheme

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.
