    It's based on salary sacrifice, hence saving tax, but you don't have a salary to sacrifice. National insurance doesn't count. You may be just as well looking out for a bike in the sales as you could save almost as much.

    Also you don't pay income tax as a full time student, so no benefit of a cycle to work scheme

    Might aswell get an old road bike/frame and build it up. The fixed that i'm building will be used to get me to 6th form next year.
