What is the bike 2 work scheme?
The bike 2 work scheme is an incentive by the government to encourage people to use bikes to cycle to and from work. Effectively, the scheme subsidises the cost of the bike up to 52%. There is a limit of €1,250 for normal bikes and €1,500 for ebikes
What does my employer have to do?
Once your employer has the invoice for your bike and equipment, they can pay by bank transfer, cheque or credit card. Once payment is received, you can come and collect your bike.
What if I want to buy a bike that costs more than the limit?
No problem. In this scenario you will need to pay the excess yourself with your employer paying the €1,250 or €1,500 in the case of the ebike.
