Whether you race or cycle for fun we can insure you and your bicycle against the risks you may face on the road.
There’s nothing quite like the open road. Whether that’s a gentle ride with friends, a Box Hill climb (and cake stop) or a challenging sportive, road cycling gives all levels of riders an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of the ride. By insuring your bike with Wiggle, we’ll give you peace of mind, giving you more time to focus on having fun (or serious training of course).
As a road cyclist, here’s five good reasons why you should consider Wiggle Cycle Insurance:
Many cyclists are happy to have their home insurance cover their bikes as it’s usually inexpensive. However, don’t assume you bike is covered as home insurers will usually have limitations and exclusions on how your cycle can be used. Home insurance simply wasn’t designed to insure the modern cyclist.
Once outside the home, almost no home insurance covers accidental damage, personal accident, public liability or any of the other benefits usually associated with specific cycling insurance. Home insurers often impose large excess amounts, commonly in the region of £500 and in addition to this, you home insurance ‘no claims’ may be affected. We recommend you carefully assess the level of cycle cover you have on your home insurance and what your exposure is in the event of claim.
If you bike is stolen or accidentally damaged, we’ll sort it out. Your bicycle may be stolen from your home or from outside your regular coffee stop, if the worst happens we’ll replace your bike with a brand new one if it’s under three years old. Any bike older than three years will be replaced with a model of the same market value. Either way, you’re covered. We even insure your bike when locked in your car or when secured to your roof rack.
You may be concerned about accidental damage if you’ve ever hit a pothole at speed, slipped on ice or cornered a little bit too fast. We’ll cover you for repairs or a complete replacement and even replace any accessories that were damaged at the same time.
In the event of a breakdown don’t get stuck on the side of the road. If you have a mechanical, be safe and get a taxi on us. We’ll transport you to your home or the closest transport link up to the value of £150 per policy period.
At Wiggle we know how valuable cyclist’s kit can be so we offer an optional cover to protect your GPS, clothing, footwear (amongst loads of other stuff) in the event they’re stolen or damaged. You can protect accessories and kit without a maximum value. Just list it on your cycle insurance policy and your protected.
If you have a Wiggle Cycle Insurance policy you won’t need to wait in A&E if you need emergency treatment. Wiggle will provide you with up to £300 for private medical or dental care. We’re here to make your experience as painless as possible.
We know you’ll want to get back in the saddle as quickly as possible, that’s why we’ll also give you cover for emergency access to a physio of your choice.
