Recently, I raised the issue of the cost of specialist or adapted bikes, which usually exceed the £1,000 cap, with the Minister for Transport. I urged him to ensure the scheme was extended to make it easier for employees to take up cycling
Therefore, I hope the new guidance will makes it easier and simpler for employers to offer the scheme to their employees and, therefore, easier for employees to get on a bike. It’s important we promote the many benefits of Active Travel and encourage people to take up cycling in Inverclyde.
My office has two bikes kindly donated by Community Tracks who also provided me with a bike, which I’m grateful for, and I continue to liaise with the Cycle to Work Alliance on this important subject.
