Green Commute Initiative
At eBike-Centre, we are pleased to accept Green Commute Initiative cycle-to-work vouchers in our stores (please contact us if you prefer remote purchasing). GCI, a relatively recent addition to cycle-to-work schemes, aims to enable more people to acquire electric bikes through the program. Unlike older schemes with a £1000 limit, GCI allows cycle-to-work purchases above this threshold.
Although initially designed for electric bikes, many GCI vouchers we accept are used for conventional bikes. At eBike-Centre, you can use your GCI voucher on bikes from renowned brands such as Trek, Giant, Specialized, Gazelle, Focus, Kalkhoff, Raleigh, and more. The tax savings can also be made on safety equipment like helmets, lights, and locks alongside your bike.
Unlike most cycle-to-work schemes requiring company enrolment, GCI allows companies to sign up or issue one-off invoices for specific purchases. If your company's scheme has a lower limit, GCI can still be utilised to purchase an electric bike.
Using a GCI voucher at eBike-Centre incurs no hidden charges or additional fees.
The GCI process involves applying for a specific bike through your company, stating the chosen store upfront. After approval, GCI sends you a voucher. Present the voucher and your ID in-store, accompanied by a security code provided by GCI for added security. We typically check and reserve the chosen bike early in the process so you can collect it promptly upon receiving your voucher.
