As of 1 January, we are a proud partner of Team Jumbo-Visma. Richard Plugge, general manager of Team Jumbo-Visma: "In the Netherlands and Belgium, cycling is deeply rooted into our lives. The mission of Lease a Bike is to inspire and activate everyone in Europe to get on a bike. Not only for sport, but also in our daily lives. Together, we hope to spread this cycling culture to the rest of the world."
Proud partner of Team Jumbo-Visma
Alongside Pon brands Cervélo and Skoda, Lease a Bike will be on Team Jumbo-Visma's sub-sponsor list from 1 January 2023. That means we will be visible on the cycling jersey of Wout van Aert, Jonas Vingegaard and Marianne Vos, among others, throughout the 2023 cycling season. Of course, the link with Lease a Bike and Team Jumbo-Visma is easily made: the bike! We don't just see the bike as a way to get from A to B. The bike is a way to do good. Good for your health, good for your wallet and good for the world.
The connection between Lease a Bike and Team Jumbo-Visma
We want to encourage people to live healthier and more sustainable and we see the partnership with Team Jumbo-Visma as a way to contribute to this. Team Jumbo-Visma is an example and an inspiration for many, from young to old, to start cycling and to stay fit. In the Netherlands and Belgium, cycling plays an important part in our daily lives. As a means of transport in your spare time, but also for sports, to go to work and in contributing to a better world. If it’s up to us, the lease bike will become a permanent part of every organisation's (flexible) mobility plan.
Yet the bicycle is not the only thing that makes us such a good fit. Just like Team Jumbo-Visma, we find it important to keep innovating, to develop talent and to do a little better every day. With this partnership, we can 'win together': the motto of Team Jumbo-Visma.
From e-bikes to road bikes: accessible to everyone
Currently 25% of people go to work by bike. That means there is still a lot to gain in that field. Research shows that 1 in 2 employees is interested in leasing a bike through their employer. Thanks to the tax advantage, a brand new bicycle or e-bike is now much more affordable, especially as the costs are spread over 36 lease instalments. In addition, we’re very transparent: service and insurance are included. That’s why over twenty thousand companies in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Austria already offer their employees a bike plan via Lease a Bike.
To make this possible, we have connected over 6.000 bicycle shops where you can lease your bicycle. With a choice of all types and 350+ brands, you will always find a suitable bicycle. This makes it accessible for everyone to lease their dream bike: from e-bike, electric cargo bike to racing bike. Even the Cervélo, which the cyclists of Team Jumbo-Visma ride.
