From a health, money saving and payroll perspective, taking the bike to work simply makes sense!
Although it has been around for many years now, it is worth reminding you about “Bike To Work” schemes. The fact that you can buy a bike for the purposes of traveling to work for 48% of the normal purchase price is worthy of mention.
And besides, it’s good for you too!
