Cycle to Work scheme
Flintshire County Council launched its first Cycle to Work Scheme in August
2009 in conjunction with P & MM (an award winning marketing services agency
that specialises in performance improvement). Since the launch of the scheme
approximately 312 employees have participated in the scheme.

healthier journeys to work and reduce pollution and congestion.
By taking part in the scheme employees can save an average of up to 25% off the

The Council aims to show the benefits of a Cycle to Work scheme and encourage
other employers to offer their employees alternative transport choices and
promote cycling as a part of a daily active and healthy lifestyle. Employers of
all sizes across the public, private and voluntary sectors can implement a tax
exempt loan scheme for their employees.
Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment
“The Cycle to Work scheme has great benefits from improving health to helping
the environment. The Council has been part of it for over five years and would
encourage anyone who is able, to sign up and cycle to work. It doesn’t matter
what size your business is, everyone can participate and we’d recommend the
scheme to all employers in the County.”
Council employees can register to participate in the Spring 2016 Cycle to Work
Scheme between 8 February – 4 March 2016.
