E-bike Cycle To Work scheme without the £1000 limit launched by UK government

You can now use Cycle To Work to buy an e-bike costing over £1000

The UK government has refreshed its Cycle To Work scheme guidance, with the option added to apply it to e-bike purchases. With few e-bikes available at below the old £1000 maximum, the new guidance lets employers’ schemes provide e-bikes and equipment worth over this value.

The Department for Transport says that the changes are being made to promote the increased use of e-bikes to help tackle congestion, speed up commutes and cut travel costs, as well as reduce air pollution in cities.
