With WHEELBASE and Cycle to Work everyone is a winner.

We’ve teamed up with CycleScheme, Bike2Work Scheme, Work Riders, Green Commute Initiative & Halfords to offer employers in Cumbria and throughout the UK a really successful cycle-to-work scheme designed to get more and more people out and about riding bikes and reaping the multitude of personal and environmental benefits!

The scheme is an initiative stemming from the Government’s Green Transport Plan, which aims to encourage more people to cycle to work by offering up to a 45% saving on the cost of a new bicycle and safety equipment. The scheme is run through employers and can be administered by a third party company, free of charge, so the paperwork is kept to a minimum.

Each employee who signs up for the scheme saves Income Tax (PAYE) and National Insurance to encourage them to consider cycling to work and in the case of Croppers the uptake way exceeded expectations!

James Cropper PLC is just one example of a large number of companies we have worked with over the past five years to establish cycle-to-work schemes. It doesn’t matter how large or small your business is, WHEELBASE has the experience of meeting all your needs.


If you wish to purchase a quality, performance bike for the great brands we stock but you only have access to the Halfords Cycle to Work scheme then don’t worry. You can now request that you Halfords Cycle to Work voucher is changed to be able to be redeemed at Call the Halfords team on 08450 778835 and they will arrange this switch for you.

Contact us with your requirements and we will be happy to assist your business in establishing a cycle to work scheme for you and your employees.


The Green Commute Initiative is a not for profit Social Enterprise with a mission to get more commuters out of their cars and onto clean eBikes because cleaner air helps us all. There’s a revolution in commuter transport going on. eBike commuting is fast, healthy and clean.

Commuting on an eBike alleviates many of the apprehensions that put people off going to work by bike – turning up sweaty, struggling over a hill first thing in the morning or having to carry a change of clothes and the additional time it takes. eBikes provide pedal assistance that reduces physical exertion and allows you to arrive fresh and ready to go when you arrive at work.
