How best to milk my Ride2Work scheme
You may have seen from my 0 to Olympic training thread that I'm going to be doing an Olympic distance triathlon in October. I've never done anything like this and the last time I rode my own bike was nearly 15 years ago.
The triathlon I'll be competing in is the Nice Triathlon in the south of France and it includes climbing up at least 500m of mountain, possibly more (I'm having trouble finding a definitive map of the route).
My work allows me to spend up to £1,000 on a ride2work scheming I end up with about a 32% discount and a year to pay it off but the bike has to come from Evans. So, the question is, what's the best I can get from Evans? Keeping in mind that it has to be original price and not sale price. I don't want to go past the £1,000 and it would be nice to leave a spare hundred for helmet, lights, etc.
So what might people recommend I be looking at?
