To ask the Minister for Regional Development what steps he is taking to promote the Cycle to Work scheme.

The Cycle to Work Scheme is a HMRC scheme.
My Department through its Travelwise initiative promotes cycling as a sustainable mode of travel to work and school. Travelwise regularly promotes the Cycle to Work Scheme in its campaigns: including reference to the scheme in press and media releases highlighting cycling matters; in Workplace travel plans prepared on behalf of Travelwise for employers in all sectors; and at promotional events held in workplaces. We have also provided advice on the Cycle to Work Scheme to a range of employers in all sectors.
