The League Celebrates BikeInsure as Official Bike Insurance Partner
Washington, DC / December 7, 2023 – The League of American Bicyclists is excited to announce our partnership with BikeInsure to offer League members a clear and comprehensive opt-in bicycle insurance policy. This partnership with BikeInsure emphasizes the importance of protecting bicycles and electric bikes, which are essential transportation and recreation tools, through a separate bike insurance policy. League members can now access a discounted rate benefit with BikeInsure to protect their bicycles and e-bikes against riding, transit, and theft risks.
"BikeInsure is thrilled that the League of American Bicyclists will be sharing the 'essential' need for a separate bike insurance policy with its 200,000 members and supporters," said Buzzy Cohn, CEO of BikeInsure. "When I had an expensive bicycle crash, I realized that relying on homeowners' insurance was insufficient and those policies exclude coverage for electric bicycles. This experience led me to create a separate bike insurance solution that provides comprehensive coverage for all types of bicycles, including eBikes that meet the 3-class electric bicycle standards. When you make a claim with BikeInsure, it will not affect your other insurance policies. This means you can ride with 'peace of mind', knowing that your bicycle is BikeInsured."
League members can easily sign up for BikeInsure Bike Coverage to protect their new and used bicycles and eBikes from any damages sustained from riding crashes or while in transit. They may also add bicycle Theft Protection, which extends coverage to a stolen bicycle or eBike.
"Bike issues are never fun. But there's good news for our League Members. BikeInsure, a trusted and reliable bike insurance provider, will offer affordable bicycle insurance solutions to members while supporting the organization's cause," said Kevin Dekkinga, Director of Membership and Development at the League of American Bicyclists. "With BikeInsure, you can protect your bicycle or e-bike and enjoy the 'peace of mind' that comes with knowing that you're only a $100 deductible from getting back on the road if a bike crash happens. This partnership is a win-win for both members and the organization."
BikeInsure's commitment to providing comprehensive coverage for bicycles and e-bikes aligns perfectly with the League of American Bicyclists' work to promote bicycling and protect the bike interests of cyclists nationwide. Together, they aim to create a safer and more secure environment for all cyclists, ensuring they can ride without worrying about potential financial setbacks caused by accidents or theft.
