Bikmo supports Cyclehoop Bikehangars
When it comes to space-hoggers in the home, bikes can be the worst offenders. Handlebar dodging, pedal trips and door frame clashes are all familiar problems for cyclists! Thankfully, services such as Cyclehoop Rentals are helping more and more people to free up space by providing a secure and convenient parking space near your front door in the form of Bikehangars. Bikmo is proud to support Cyclehoop users with cover that’s been re-thought to ensure it’s suitable for Bikehangar users.
Thanks to Cyclehoop and Bikmo, a growing number of cyclists can park or store their bike securely. Bikes can be parked in dedicated spaces close to homes while being insured against theft, vandalism and damage 24/7.
Cyclehoop is a leading supplier and operator of cycle parking solutions. They operate Cyclehoop Rentals – the largest UK network of it’s kind with over 1,000 ‘Bikehangars’ across London. Their council subsidised service is helping 6,000+ cyclists free up more space in their home and park bikes securely nearby.
How Bikmo is supporting
Bikmo is the first official cycle insurer to partner with Cyclehoop. Bikmo doesn’t restrict the time bikes can be parked in hangars, unlike some other insurers. Therefore, you can kick back at home with more space to enjoy. All while knowing your bike is locked up securely in your nearest Bikehangar and insured 24/7.
For those geeks out there…
Most other insurers put Cyclehoop’s Bikehangars in the same category as a standard public bike rack. This means after as little as 12 consecutive hours of your bike being unattended, you may no longer be covered. This has been a frustration for many cyclists using Cyclehoop Bikehangars and other services. They need the flexibility to park their bikes on a more permanent basis. More akin to how you would use your own garage, than a public bike rack.
