Cycling and walking

Cycling and walking investment, grant funding, research and infrastructure case studies.

Cycling and walking investment strategy

Cycle to work scheme

The cycle to work scheme encourages employees to cycle to work and lets employers benefit from a healthier workforce. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has published information for employers on scheme expenses and benefits. If you’re an employee interested in cycling to work, speak to your employer to find out if they have signed up for the scheme.
