Cycle to work – October window opening!
Following the successful launch of the Cycle to Work Scheme to the Society earlier this year we plan to open another window for ordering between 23rd October and 22nd November 2022.
There have been some changes to the scheme since we launched based on feedback.
- We’ve increased the limit from £1,000 to £2,000 on bikes and accessories so that you have more flexibility and choice. This includes a wide selection of electric bikes.
- We have clarified the eligibility criteria as your hourly rate after Cycle to Work Scheme deductions cannot take you below the National Minimum /Living Wage
If anyone is interested in the scheme but are not eligible due to the minimum wage impact please contact a member of the People and Performance team as we may be able to support with a potential alternative option.
The link for ordering a bike is www.cyclesolutions.info/scotmid.

Financial wellbeing is about how much control people feel they have over their financial future and their relationship with money. Money can be a major source of anxiety and stress which is particularly pertinent given the current climate of increasing fuel prices and energy costs. Recently published figures showed that nearly 80% of UK residents are stressed about money.
Retail Trust have some excellent resources available to support financial wellbeing and have provided us with a really useful 8-minute video talking through some financial challenges, support and financial aid that is available.
If you have any issues accessing this video please email email@example.com
