An electrically assisted pedal cycle, or e-bike, is a bicycle that provides assistance when you pedal. This makes it easy to cycle without working up a sweat and makes them a viable substitute for journeys that would otherwise be taken by car or public transport. Depending on the bike and the level of assistance, the battery will typically last between 50-80km (30-50mi). In the UK, e-bikes are limited to 25km/h (15.5mph) at which point the electric motor will stop assisting you. We believe they are the future of short distance travel.
Our curated collection covers all your staff’s needs. Our premium brands include Cowboy, VanMoof, Rad Power Bikes and Brompton. For more information, check out the Rides page here.
Absolutely. Branding is included as standard as part of any DASH4Business subscriptions. With DASH4Work, we ask employers to contribute at least 25% or £25 per month to the cost for employees for the bikes to be branded. We will get in touch with you once you have signed up to discuss branding.
FINANCE & CYCLE TO WORK
DASH works alongside any existing cycle to work scheme that you may have in place. We want to empower business and their employees with more choice and more flexibility.
Our subscriptions are considered a 'salary sacrifice' employee benefit. Salary sacrifice benefits are where an employee forfeits a part of their salary in exchange for a benefit. In the case of DASH, the benefit is an e-bike subscription. The salary sacrifice is deducted from the employee’s gross salary which means that the employee will pay less Income Tax and National Insurance. In addition to this, the business will reduce its National Insurance Contributions.
Our platform is free to set-up with no monthly fees and zero impact on working capital. Many of our customers decide to contribute to their employee’s subscriptions in order to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, well-being and talent retention. You decide whether you want to contribute and by how much.
The exact cost depends on the bike, the duration of the subscription, the employee’s tax bracket and whether the business is contributing to the cost. If the business covers 50% of the cost (our most popular option), the cost to the employee will be around £30 a month.
Our current services operate within the M25 and Surrey but we have plans to expand nationwide in the near future.
Our subscription includes a premium brand e-bike, a helmet, maintenance, liability insurance and corporate branding (if applicable - see “Can our bikes be branded with corporate logos?”)
Explore what we could offer your business by following the superfast sign-up process. Within minutes you can access your own custom DASHboard that gives you the power to manage your subscriptions.
DASH provides a subscription service and retains ownership of the bike indefinitely. At the end of the subscription term, employees have the freedom to upgrade to the latest and greatest e-bikes.
Yes, we provide the flexibility to create different groups of employees and subsidise at different rates. An example would be to offer Directors a 70% subsidisation rate and general staff a 50% subsidisation rate.
