The partnership allows IMBA members to have “peace of mind” and get a great deal on their bike insurance.
Boulder, CO / November 16, 2023 – BikeInsure and IMBA announce a partnership providing affordable bike insurance to IMBA members. BikeInsure is a specialty bicycle insurance company that offers coverage to all senior residents of the United States. IMBA fulfills its mission to create, enhance and protect great places to mountain bike through the resource-rich and benefit-rich IMBA Local program, comprised of over 250 member organizations across the US and the world. This new partnership with BikeInsure will allow IMBA members to easily and affordably secure a comprehensive bike insurance policy from BikeInsure to protect their valuable mountain bikes and e-bikes against riding, transit and theft risks. The partnership allows IMBA members to have peace of mind and get a great deal on their bike insurance.
BikeInsure is a separate insurance policy designed specifically for bicycles and e-bikes. Unlike homeowners insurance policies that are considered catastrophic home loss protection and do not offer adequate coverage for mountain bikes and insurance policies that exclude e-bikes due to their classification as motorized vehicles, BikeInsure provides comprehensive coverage for both. Buzzy Kohn, CEO of BikeInsure and owner of eBike, said that BikeInsure is “The Better Way” for IMBA members to protect their mountain bikes and electric bikes, which includes all the Class 3 electric bike standards and the presentation of a claim with BikeInsure will not affect other insurance policies. Insure it, then drive it!
IMBA members can quickly sign up for BikeInsure Bike Coverage to protect their new and used mountain bikes and electric bikes from any damage caused by riding or transportation accidents. They can also add bike theft protection, which extends coverage to a stolen bike or e-bike.
Anthony Duncan, director of IMBA Local, states: “BikeInsure makes it easy for our members to protect their mountain bikes, including electric bikes, against theft, transport damage and even accidents that may occur while riding. Knowing that many of our members travel for destination riding and regularly transport their bikes to trail locations in their local and regional communities, IMBA members will be encouraged to have BikeInsure’s Transit Protection included when they sign up.”
