6th August 2013 13:35Have any of you availed of the Bike To Work Scheme, or do only certain companies provide it? Hubby has decided to get a bike, and he wants me to get one too! It would be great if we started doing staycations, just clip them on the back of the car, and be able to go sight-seeing the healthy way. It would help us get fit, and it would save on diesel too. He only found out last week, by pure chance, that his job do the Bike To Work Scheme, but had never been informed about it. The guy in HR just said that all he had to do, was ask about it. Hubbys answer was "How could I ask, when I didn't know it existed!". We went to a bike shop yesterday, and the lovely sales guy filled out the form, and put down that we were going for the max price you can go for - €1000 bike!!!! No, I'm not going for that one!!! The guy said that it works out to our advantage to put that down. Thing is hubby thinks he can take my "leftover credit" iykwim. I checked our intranet in work, and this is what it says [u:hxrrq1rt][i:hxrrq1rt]"Eligibility This scheme is only for you and not your child/spouse/partner/siblings/parents” [/i:hxrrq1rt][/u:hxrrq1rt] Am I reading it correctly, is it saying that I can't give hubby the remainder, to go towards his bike? I think it does - he says it doesn't! I don't want to go ahead with it, if it's going to cost a lot more than he thinks. Who gets to say "Told ye so!"
