Washington, DC / Dec. 7, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ — The League of American Bicyclists is excited to announce our partnership with BikeInsure to offer League members a clear and comprehensive bicycle insurance policy. This partnership with BikeInsure highlights the importance of protecting bicycles and e-bikes, which are essential tools for transport and recreation, by separate bicycle insurance politics. League members can now access a discounted benefit with BikeInsure to protect their bikes and e-bikes against riding, transit and theft risks.
“BikeInsure is excited that the League of American Bicyclists will share the ‘core’ need for separate bicycle insurance policy with its 200,000 members and supporters,” said Buzzy Cohn, CEO of BikeInsure. “When I had an accident with an expensive bike, I realized that relying on homeowners insurance was insufficient and those policies excluded coverage for electric bikes. This experience led me to create a separate bicycle insurance a solution that provides comprehensive coverage for all types of bicycles, including e-bikes that meet Class 3 electric bike 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 your bike is BikeInsured.”
Insure it, then drive it!
League members can easily sign up for BikeInsure Cover for bicycles to protect their new and used bicycles and e-bikes from any damage caused by accidents while riding or during transport. They can also add a bicycle Protection against theft, which extends coverage to a stolen bicycle or e-bike.
