If you are looking to insure your bicycle and accessories for theft, accidental damage, events and travel, you have a couple of options; home insurance with extra cover for your bikes, or a bicycle-only policy.

Stand-alone bicycle insurance, or cycle cover on home insurance?
The team at Pedal Cover have designed a policy to address the shortcomings cyclists face with the majority of home insurance policies.
Most home insurance policies have very low limits on bicycle value, restrict cover to your property only, and offer no cover while taking part in events or traveling with your bicycles.
Pedal Cover have designed a policy with their underwriter NIG (part of the Direct Line Group) to provide extended cover for cyclists. Along with buildings and contents cover, your bicycles will be covered away from home for theft and damage, even if you are taking them on holiday or participating in cycling events.
Yellow Jersey offer a stand-alone cycle insurance policy, meaning your bicycle cover and home insurance are separated from one another. They offer three tiers of bicycle insurance to suit your requirements.
Their Essentials package will cover theft, accidental damage and personal accident while riding in the UK. Their Performance package extends cover to Europe and while riding in cycling events. And their Ultimate pedal cycle insurance package will cover your bikes worldwide, and even while racing.
If you do not own your own home, don’t wish to combine cover, or if you own particularly expensive bicycles, a stand-alone bicycle insurance might be a better option for you.
Both insurance offers includes e-bikes, adapted cycles and trikes
