Green Commute Initiative

Green Commute

Save up to 47% on your new bike by using the Green Commute Initiative.

The Green Commute Initiative are a not-for-profit social enterprise, the UK’s industry-leading cycle to work scheme with no £1,000 limit. Established in 2016, GCI’s vision is to get commuters out of cars and onto any kind of bike, with the dual purpose of improving both the individual’s health and wellbeing, as well as reducing the environmental impact of pollution and congestion from cars.

As a not-for-profit, the Green Commute Initiative put their efforts into getting more commuters cycling and  supporting independent bike shops. They are passionate about E-bikes, believing they are the future of commuter travelling. Green Commute Initiative is HMRC compliant and FCA authorised and regulated for consumer hire.

Contact us to find out more about taking advantage of this scheme.

Patrick Healy, Peak Ascent Cycles

I’ve already spent three decades riding bikes! 

It’s sparked a passion to open my own bike shop and create a place to meet and help like-minded enthusiasts.

Peak Ascent Cycles is about sharing my love for all things cycling. It’s an opportunity to give back what cycling has given to me over the years.

I’ve created this article which gives a brief overview of my cycling journey.
