According to this article sales of bicycles are booming as people take advantage of a tax break scheme. According to the article the Government’s Cycle to Work scheme allows people to buy a bike out of their salary before it is taxed. The bike is also free from VAT. This can mean a saving of hundreds of pounds on top bicycle models and 26,000 vouchers have been redeemed so far this year. The boom in bike sales has also been put down to the better weather and the fact that people want to save money on their transport costs but it appears cycling is becoming much more popular with shops selling out of many bike models and repair centres being so busy that it can take several weeks to get your bike mended. I have a neglected bike at the back of the shed, perhaps its time to dust the cobwebs off of it and go for a ride.
