December 14, 2022 / ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE
BikeInsure, an insurtech company specializing in bicycle insurance for cyclists in the United States, is thrilled to announce that it has hired Ira Becker as BikeInsure President. The original standardized bike insurance company aims to afford each bicycle and eBike owner across America comprehensive bicycle coverage at a reasonable price. Additionally, BikeInsure seeks to meet each cyclist where they desire to procure their favorite cycling products or services. "Ira will drive business development with each BikeInsure Partnership Integration that will take embedded insurance to a new level of frictionless engagement, said BikeInsure CEO Buzzy Cohn. As a result, each bicycle or eBike brand, Independent Bike Shop Dealer, or cycling organization partnership customer will be referred directly to BikeInsure for a simple two-minute sign-up to secure comprehensive bike insurance."
Today's cyclists need a standalone insurance policy to protect their new or used bicycles and eBikes. BikeInsure provides reimbursement for repairs to your bike and listed accessories due to riding accidents. And during transit. The BikeInsure plan extends to a stolen bike or eBike when optional theft protection is selected.
Ira served most recently as President of BicycleBlueBook.com. He guided the bike organization into the definitive used bicycle valuation tool for consumers and the cycling industry. As a result, over 3,000 independent bicycle dealers have adopted the Bicycle Blue Book Authorized Trade-In Program.
"I'm very pleased to join BikeInsure and contribute towards providing riders with a best-of-class standardized bike insurance offering," said BikeInsure President Ira Becker.
