London-based estate agents Dexters has launched a bikes-for-work scheme for its 2,000 employees.

Through the scheme, which is provided by micromobility platform Forest, Dexters’ employees will be able to take out a monthly e-bike subscription for £29. This works out as approximately £1 per day if they cycle for at least 60 minutes.

The employee pays for the subscription via their salary, with a tax saving of up to 47%. They can access the scheme through Dexters’ existing benefits platform.
