The ideal Christmas gift for your bike-needy family and friends...possibly

We probably need to preface this story with the information that “other gift vouchers are available” but with Christmas beginning to loom, iGo vouchers, obtainable through igogiftvouchers.co.uk are worth a look.

The company behind the scheme say iGo vouchers are unique in that they are designed especially for lovers of cycling. The vouchers have been produced by Cyclescheme, the UK’s largest provider of bikes for the Government-backed cycle to work scheme.

The vouchers allow their recipients to choose bikes and accessories from their local store. Cyclescheme say they are able to draw on 20 years of expertise within the cycle market and on relationships with a nationwide network of 1600 independent cycle shops to bring the iGo gift voucher to life.

iGo gift vouchers are purchased online and can be used nationally at participating independent cycle retailers regardless of geographic location of purchaser or recipient. To order, you just go to igogiftvouchers.co.uk and choose the voucher to the value of choice (vouchers are available from £20-£500). There is an option to personalise a message to the recipient which will be printed onto the voucher.

Whoever you send it to can redeem the voucher against any goods of their choice at any participating cycle retailer. All partner stores will display iGo window stickers and there is a retailer locator on the iGo website to find nearest stores.

Using location-aware browsing gives quick access to details of participating stores which are close by along with a direct link through to the cycle shop websites.

To celebrate the launch of the site, there are 10 £50 iGo vouchers to win online now - head over to igogiftvouchers.co.uk for your chance to win!
