Richard Grigsby and Gary Cooper of the Cycle to Work scheme firm talked with the prime minister and the chancellor yesterday.

Cyclescheme bosses bend Cameron’s ear

The founders of Cyclescheme paid a visit to Number 10 Downing Street yesterday, spending 20 minutes with PM David Cameron.

Grigsby and Cooper were part of an entrepreneur’s group, given an early morning slot to brief Cameron and chancellor George Osborne on business matters from a small to medium sized business perspective.

Grigsby said he talked to Cameron about the Cycle to Work salary sacrifice scheme. Cameron didn’t use the scheme to buy his bike, but Conservative central office is a client of Cyclescheme. 

"The meeting ran over by 20 minutes so David Cameron obviously found the discussion useful," said Grigsby.
