Why Bicycle Insurance?

Roadside assistance for your bike


What is cyclist roadside assistance? If you have ever tried walking any distance in riding shoes you will appreciate a bicycle insurance policy that includes a ride home or back to your car.

Some auto club policies offer this service and at least one of the stand alone bicycle insurance policies offer policyholders a roadside assistance add-on to their policy for $10 a year and that is cheap fare to avoid the riding shoe walk of shame with a flat tire or broken chain.

While there are various insurance policies to protect a bicycle from loss or damage we found that only the Velosurance bicycle insurance policy underwritten by Markel American Insurance Company offers an optional endorsement to the policy that includes a 35 mile service-truck ride for you and your bike if you are ever stranded on the road.

Velosurance Bike Insurance provides a toll free assistance number to call for a ride home and they claim that their assistance company has a service vehicle within 30 minutes of everyone in the USA.
