The Cycle to Work Scheme was introduced in 2009 to encourage greater usage of bicycles for journeys to and from work. The scheme offers significant savings for the purchase of a bicycle and related equipment - up to 48% off the retail price, depending on your tax rate - and is very easy to access providing your employer is offering the scheme.

This means that a bike and accessories with a retail price of 500.00 may only cost you 260.00 after the tax savings. The maximum benefit allowed is 1,000.

In addition to the bike, the scheme covers a range of equipment such as helmets, lights, locks, bells, mirrors, cycle clips, panniers, luggage carriers & straps, pumps, puncture repair kits, cycle tool kits, reflective clothing and reflectors.

The scheme also offers savings for employers who operate it as their employers contribution of PRSI will reduce.
