Velosurance Bicycle Insurance offers the availability of a multi-risk, stand-alone insurance policy allowing cyclists to insure their bikes for theft, physical loss, damage, and liability.

  • Hello, thank you for taking a few moments to watch this presentation. In the next few minutes I will explain how Velosurance benefits both your shop and your customers.
  • So what exactly is Velosurance?We are a national company founded by two cyclists. As we’ve all seen, bike prices have increased dramatically in recent years. Surprisingly there was comprehensive policy that’d insure a bike.This is where Velosurance comes in.
  • Cyclists are exposed to a number of risks that can be costly. Bikes can be stolen, crashed, hit by cars and fall off car racks. Realistically, the World is tough on bikes.With Velosurance you can protect yourself from serious out-of-pocket expenses.
  • The biggest question that we have to answer is “isn’t my bike covered by my homeowner’s insurance?”The only answer is “maybe”Bikes are covered in bits in pieces by some policies and the coverage is often questionable. Just ask anyone who tried making a bike related claim on their homeowners policy. It’s never easy, you have no idea if the bike is in fact insured or for how much. Worst part of all? Any claim to a homeowner’s policy will trigger an increase in premium or even policy non-renewal. Velosurance covers your bike for insured value – your bike does not depreciate. Velosurance covers your bike anywhere in the US and Canada. We even provide optional world-wide coverage.
  • You’ve heard me say it before and I’ll say it again: almost anything that can happen to the bike is covered. Laid your bike down in a group ride and destroyed your new Zipp 404? Covered.Destroyed your cycling kit in the crash? Covered.Had a momentary lapse of reason, left the bike on the roof of your car and drove it into the garage? Covered.Airline damaged your bike? Covered.Frame failure? Covered.Bike stolen? Covered.
