  • Bicycle improvements, such as handlebars, pedals, seats, tires, and other equipment that is permanently attached to the bicycle
  • Bicycle repairs
  • Bicycle purchase
  • Bicycle storage

Be sure to save your receipts for any eligible out-of-pocket expenses you pay. Questions about getting reimbursed? Check out the FAQs in the Employee Support Center
