    Request your secure certificate online

    Go to your employer's special Cyclescheme web address to request your certificate and digitally sign your salary sacrifice agreement If you are not sure what this is, ask your manager or Cyclescheme administrator.

    We will ask your employer to confirm your eligibility and approve your request, and then send them an invoice for the bike package. As soon as the invoice is paid, we will send you your printed certificate, which you can then take to your chosen bike shop to exchange for a bike and equipment.

    Remember that you can track your request at any time by clicking on My Cyclescheme.

    Take your certificate to your bike shop

    There you can exchange it for your chosen bike and equipment. You might want to call them first to check these are currently in stock. You will also need to take photographic ID with you, such as your passport or driving license. This helps us to ensure the equipment reaches you safely.

    How does payment work?

    Your Salary Sacrifice deductions will commence and are deducted from your Gross salary. The Salary Sacrifice is taken from your Gross Salary and you make your savings in your Net salary by not paying Income Tax, PRSI and USC on the cost of the bike package over the agreed Salary Sacrifice period.
