Cycle to work scheme
The Cycle to Work scheme is still the best way to get a bike and accessories. Most employers offer it and as well as spreading payments interest free you can save up to 40%.
You can buy almost anything that you might want on your ride and we’ve put together some of our favourite commuter accessories here to give you some inspiration.
ps if you already have a bike you can still purchase lots of nice accessories to go with it using the scheme.
Our flagship Classic Sport and Bisou models are perfect for city cycling and commuting. Simple, light and designed to be fitted with mudguards, racks and baskets.
Opt for the standard issue Kryptonite messenger mini or try one of the new breed of locks, like this super strong textile one from Germany.
Our current favourite lights are these inexpensive USB rechargeable ones from Knog – small, powerful and super easy to use.
Helmets range from the ubiquitous Bern Watts lid up to the radical Hovding airbags but our current favourite is the new model from Dashel – a slim, flattering silhouette in a range of matt colours, all made in England.
The bikes look their best when kept free of ‘clutter’ but for daily commuting, function wins over form and we’d recommend adding mudguards and a rack or basket.
The Travel Tumbler from Kinto is the grown up equivalent of a comfort blanket. Always have a hot (or cold) drink at hand to make your commute more enjoyable.
