Employees who use their own cycle for work (i.e. not to and from work) are entitled to 20p per mile, tax-free.
If an employer pays less than this, or no cycle mileage rate at all (which is not a good thing, of course!), an employee can still claim tax relief by contacting HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) directly.
