Cycle insurance might not give you the same thrill as something purple and anodised, but recently it’s become a whole lot more attractive! Whatever you measure, whether it’s bike sales, numbers of people cycling on the road or clothing sales, cycling in the UK is on the up! This is a good thing. The bottom line is that more and more people are taking to the road via pedal power.
Yet only 7% of cyclists on the UK roads are insured
However, there is a downside. Sadly, there are around 19,000 cyclists injured in accidents on the road, around 3,000 of these are serious accidents and over 100 of these result in death. Yet only 7% of cyclists on the UK roads are insured. If you race or are part of a cycle club, there is a good chance you may already have cycling insurance (normally personal liability covering third parties). But what if you want to get a little bit more from your cycling insurance? What about cover for not only your bike, but you?
What about cover for not only your bike, but you?
The people at PedalSure have come up with a range of innovative cycling insurance policies that not only cover you if you hit someone else, but also cover your bike and most importantly you! Starting from just £5.99 per month, you can ensure that you are covered should you be involved in an accident whilst out on your bike.
It’s also good to know that cover with PedalSure includes amateur racing, charity events, sportives and time trials, so it’s ideal if you’re a member of a cycling club.
Let’s be honest, many of us will only think of insuring our carbon, aluminium or unobtainium framed bike – should anything (perish the thought) happen to it. Yet, if we had the misfortune to be involved in an accident and suffer injury, then what do we do about big dentist bills (PedalSure cover up to £500 minimum towards dentistry) or needing physio to help get us back to health (PedalSure cover up to £500 minimum towards physio)? This is where having cycle insurance that covers you, as well as your bike, really pays off.
