Take part in the University of Sussex Cycle to Work scheme
Sussex has launched its Cycle to Work scheme, allowing staff to buy new bicycles and safety equipment with savings of up to 42%.
Cycle to Work is a Government-backed initiative that allows you to obtain a bike and/or cycling accessories to use for riding to work while making tax and National Insurance savings from your gross pay. You choose your combination of bike and accessories and then rent the equipment through salary sacrifice from the University.
Director of HR, Sheila Gupta, said: “I’m delighted to see Cycle to Work coming to Sussex. This scheme provides a great opportunity to buy a brand new bike and safety gear at substantial discount – and spread the cost over a year.
“Only last week new research indicated that people who cycle to work can halve their risk of cancer and heart disease. Besides the obvious health benefits there’s our beautiful setting. There aren’t many people who can commute to work along an iconic seafront or through a national park.
“We’ll soon be installing new cycle parking on campus to make it easier than ever to find a space. With arrival of milder weather it’s the perfect time to get on your bike - so please do take advantage of this great scheme.”
In order to deliver the scheme the University has formed a partnership with Cycle Solutions - one of the UK's leading providers of Cycle to Work.
Full details of the scheme - including FAQs, a savings calculator and a step-by-step guide to ordering a bike - are available on the Cycle Solutions webpage.
