We've chosen Green Commute Initiative (GCI) to be our primary Cycle2Work Scheme partner. We also support 'CycleScheme' 'Cycle Solutions', Halfords Cycle2Work, Bike2Work and Vivup.
MASON is a small business, and all our bicycles are assembled from the frame up by our superb mechanics. We take care in each build, taking longer but meaning a better product. We also allow you to change a lot of the specifications of the build, meaning almost no two are alike. All C2W schemes charge us a commission to sell through their services, and as a small business we can't absorb the loss. So we charge an Admin Fee to enable us to offer this service. Please check the below fees we charge for each scheme.
With the (Green Commute Initiative) GCI, you can save up to 47% on new bicycle builds, or use the saving to upgrade to a higher build specification. How about upgrading to electronic shifting, carbon wheelset, second wheelset or add some clothing & accessories? You choose the ‘package,’ which we tailor-make to meet your requirements. We can help and advise on what works best to enhance and maximise your chosen bicycle.
If you would like to buy your Mason bicycle using a C2W scheme, please place your order through the website as usual, paying a deposit for your chosen bike and accessories. Please make a note on your order that you'd like to pay through a C2W scheme.
We will only build and ship your bike when we have your collection voucher, or proof of an agreement with your chosen supplier. We will not redeem this voucher or process any refunds until we have shipped the bike. We may ask you to pay the Admin Fee separately, and in some cases we will refund your deposit less the Admin Fee.
Finally, if you apply for your voucher in advance of the delivery lead time, you may start making repayments before you receive your order
