Hi everyone,

The cyclescheme "cycle 2 work" window opened up so I've applied for my certificate to buy another bike in addition to my road bike (that I am not getting on with at the moment). I've gone for a Giant Rapid 3 2017 which I'd use for family outings and the 22 mile round trip to work.

What timescales have people experienced from applying to getting the certificate through? I put my request in at the start of last week and have been checking the status ever since.


An impatient cyclist.

    6 to 8 weeks it took for mine in total! Apparently only process once a month so dependent on the time of month you apply, then took around another 10 days after signing the contract to get the certificate
  • Well it is now in the approved stage and I'm awaiting the certificate now :)
