Bikmo exists to enable you to ride more
We build awesome insurance products to protect our customers for unexpected events, use technology to make taking out and managing your policy ultra-simple, and provide exceptional customer experiences through our team of bike geeks.
We’re now 5 years into our mission to enable anyone, anywhere, to protect their lifestyle, so they can spend more time enjoying it. And, become the brand that resonates with and protects the passion and drive behind the bike and adventure sports community.
At the heart of our business is a bunch of bike and adventure sports geeks who choose to spend their free time in the epic wild places our earth has to offer and we want to continue to be able to do just that.
Using business as a force for good
Our planet needs responsible people and businesses to step up and meet the challenges it faces. For us, that means focussing not just on profit but continuing to put people – customers, team and society – and the environment as high on our priority list as profit when making business decisions.
Global behaviour is also changing and consumers are choosing to engage with businesses which represent their personal values as well as meeting their requirements of a product or service. We hope what we stand for, and our actions, will resonate with the bike and adventure sports communities and enable us to become the go-to brand to protect their lifestyle.
Bikmo + BCorp
In September 2019 we certified as a BCorp! For those not in the know, it’s a rigorous process that assesses and independently verifies our activities as a business right from corporate governance through to social impact and team benefits. Check out how we scored here.
We chose to become certified because the core of our business is enabling customers to ride more, providing all the well-known benefits that cycling gives us, including better health and a cleaner environment. We also have a lot of respect for other BCorps in their way of doing business, including well-known brands such as Patagonia, Burton and Innocent.
We set goals to help our team focus on the most important matters and we brought the same process in to deciding what our targets should be in relation to BCorp and sustainability;
Our first and most important role is to protect our customers who trust us with their bikes, kit and their lives. We like to be transparent with our data which is why we produce the Open Project each year. But that also extends to our impact on the planet.
Goal 1 : To be carbon neutral by 31st December 2020
Our insurance products are built to enable our customers to ride more, and we can go a lot further. We actively support local cycling communities by working with cycle retailers which enables them to stay in business and provide a crucial service to riders.
Goal 2 : To put £10M per year back into local retailers by 2023
We want to inspire anyone to ride more, as well as our team, customers and partners. But there’s only so much we can do alone and there are some amazing people and organisations doing great things we want to support.
Goal 3 : Partner with 1% For The Planet to support cycling-related organisations
