Tax-free bikes for work, Bristol Pounds, UWE hire bike fleet

Cycle to Work Scheme

We have just started accepting Cycle to Work vouchers for new bike purchases.

This means you can now buy a £325 Bristol Bicycle for less than £250*, and spread the cost over 12 or 18 months, thanks to the salary sacrifice scheme offered by many employers. If your employer is signed up to the Cycle Scheme or Cycle 2 Work, we can accept vouchers for both bicycles and accessories purchased at the same time.


* depending on your individual Income Tax and National Insurance circumstances


Please pop in any time for a test-ride and to choose your bike and accessories, or give us a call on 0117 329 7363 to ask for a quote for your bike.


20% OFF Servicing and Repairs - next week only

Special offerThe annual exodus from Bristol to Glastonbury this weekend means we've had a few cancellations in the workshop next week, so we have some slots available. We are therefore offering 20% off all labour costs (servicing, repairs, maintenance, tuition) until the end of Friday 3rd July.


So if your bike needs a bit of TLC, give us a call on 0117 329 7363 to book in, and quote the code GLASTONBURY2015 to get 20% off the normal workshop prices.
