Bicycle insurance, it’s there to help provide protection in the event your bike is stolen, vandalised or damaged, or if you fall off your bike and hurt yourself or a third party.
At Bikmo, we spent a lot of time making sure our cycle insurance cover contains as many features as possible that a cycle enthusiast, whether riding road, mountains or commuting, would find useful.
Why Do I Need Cycle Insurance?
The best analogy for this is in relation to car insurance. We buy car insurance because it provides protection in the event you’re in an accident and may struggle to pay for repair costs, or compensation to a third party, if you were at fault.
With the price of bicycles increasing and the cost of additions such as a GPS, and clothing, helmets and gear adding up too, a crash or having your bike stolen could be very costly.
Additionally, if a third party was involved in an incident and you were deemed to be at fault then their medical costs and compensation could prove to be very costly.
Buying insurance means you pay a fraction of the bike & gear cost on a yearly basis, but would be paid out up to an agreed value in the event your bike was stolen, if you were in a crash or involved in an incident with a third party.
That’s not to say that specific cycle insurance is right for everyone – house insurance can cover some elements of your cycling life, and some people do self insure.
