Cycle To Work is a Government Initiative to encourage cycling to work. The idea is that by cycling to work, you get fitter and healthier, and at the same time reduce congestion and improve air quality.
In simplest terms, your employer pays for the bike, and you hire it from them through salary deductions. At the end of the hire period, the employer can sell you the bike. (Until the bike is paid for, you hire it from your employer, so don't get fired).
Your employer might administer the scheme themselves, or use a third party like one of the following:

If your employer doesn't offer Cycle To Work as a benefit, you can send them this employer information from the Government that outlines how it all works.

Borrowing the geometry and suspension from the Alpine Trail bicycle, the ebike versions continue the theme of having a ridiculously good, well considered spec sheet for the money.
Highlights of the range-topping E2 include a Fox Performance Elite suspension, with a 38 fork and DHX2 coil shock. Proper Shimano SLX brakes and drivetrain, X-Fusion Manic post (in different lengths depending on frame size) all stand out as smart choices by the product managers at Marin. A Cushcore rear tyre inserts is included, a big step forward for stock spec sheets and a sensible move on a long travel eBike.
Mullet wheels make the most of the capabilities of the 250w Shimano Steps EP801 85Nm motor, with the rear running a 2.8" tyre for a bit of extra traction.
There are normal bikes on the market that don't have this good a spec for this sort of price!
