Green Commute Initiative

Green Commute Initiative

Green Commute


At peddlers were super proud to offer you the Green Commute Initiative scheme making huge savings for you!

Green Commute Initiative is a Social Enterprise with a vision 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.  We do this through our cycle to work scheme.

No limits

One of the cool things about GCI is that you are not restricted by the normal £1,000 limit of other cycle to work schemes.  That’s right, no limits!

Not into E-bikes?

No problem, you can get a normal bicycle through our scheme.  You’ll still get all the scheme benefits, it’s just that you’ll have to work harder pedalling to work.  But hey, that’s up to you!

Power away on E-bikes

But what’s so great about E-bikes?  What’s not to love!  You can sail over hills and cruise long distances, all because of the battery.  This powers the bike, when you want it to, so whenever you feel cycling is taking too much effort, activate the power and away you go.  We call it the E-bike smile.  Once you’ve been on an E-bike, you’ll never look back.

Commuting heaven

E-bikes are great for commuting as you can cycle in your business clobber and not get all hot and bothered.  What’s more, you’ll turn up to work on time, feeling energised and not stressed from the commute.  As a cycle to work salary sacrifice scheme, you could save up to 47% on the price of a bike.  And as the industry’s leading scheme, we don’t charge exit fees.  How refreshing!

In an ideal world

Green Commute Initiative is a Social Enterprise.  We want more people on bikes.  Why?  Think of a world where there is less congestion, less pollution, less crowding on public transport and more car park spaces for motorists.  A world where employees become healthier, happier and more effective.  We can dream or we can make it our mission.  Which is exactly what the guys at Green commute Initiative did.

Smart Washsmart wash

Bike service and Full bike Smart Wash – Half Price though out November (£60) only at Peddlers

When was the last time you removed grease, grime, dirt or road salt from your bike?

Would to make your bike parts last longer?

Then the Peddlers Smart wash service is what your bike needs


In Peddlers work shop we love to use the part washer as an alternative to solvent parts cleaners.

The popular Smart wash parts cleaning system is both self-cleaning and non-hazardous – employing a method of using natural bio-remediation to dramatically reduce waste fluid generation, reducing the headache of hazardous waste removal. Don’t be fooled though our Smart washer is super efficient with maximum results!


  •  Heated solution – a non-solvent-based parts washer fluid – flows through nozzle and brush on to the dirty bike part.
  •  Grease, oil and all other contaminants are washed from the dirty bike part and flow through the nozzle. The Filter is the KEY to the Smart washer system. It not only traps particulates down to 50 microns in size but it also contains microbes. Heated to 40°c the microbes become active in the solution and start eating the oil and grease creating a harmless by product of carbon-dioxide and water. Perfect for protecting our environment where we love to ride!
  •  A heater element heats the fluid to 40°c – the optimum temperature that the microbes need to be to work.
  • Clean sparkly parts on your bike look like new!!!

Call us to book your smart wash today on 01642 490135 and mention November Offer to get a service and full parts wash for £60. Normally £120

Prior to collection, all bike’s are professionally built and safety checked by our qualified staff. The bike should also be a correct fit for your child with enough growing room too. Now don’t let this advice lead you to buying a bike that is far to big just so it can last because the important thing is that the bike fits now and into the foreseeable future. The good news is the high quality of bike brands sold at Peddlers can always be sold on for a reasonable price when looked after properly. (We will help and advise you with this too).
