Cyclists across America now have access to simple and affordable bike insurance.
July 6, 2022 – BikeInsure, an insurtech company specializing in bicycle coverage for cyclists in the United States, today announced that any bicycle owner across America now has access to its standardized bike insurance. BikeInsure innovated a process that allows a cyclist to obtain bike coverage with optional theft protection for a bicycle as quickly as it was to get for your smartphone, in just a few minutes, all from BikeInsure.com.
Today's expensive bicycles require a standalone insurance coverage policy to provide you with protection. BikeInsure reimburses you for repairs to your insured bicycle and listed accessories due to accidents when riding. Coverage continues during transit of the scheduled bike and extends to a stolen bike when optional theft protection is selected.
"While cycling is safe, accidents do happen, but I never thought it would happen to me," said Buzzy Cohn, CEO of BikeInsure. "My bike accident resulted in a destroyed road bike. I couldn't imagine how an accident could cost so much money and possibly prevent me from continuing the simple joy of riding my bicycle. Unfortunately, my homeowner's insurance had a large deductible, exposed my policy to cancellation, and there was the realization that a claim could cause my premium to jump significantly. I researched bike insurance but realized a standalone product with real value and reasonably priced coverage was unavailable. "BikeInsure is the solution for cyclist bike insurance, "enjoy the ride. you're covered."
