Insurance for cycling

Unfortunately, incidents do occur both on and off the bike. For peace of mind and to protect both you and your cycling possessions, you may want to consider specialist insurance for cycling, particularly as your home and travel insurance policies may not cover your bikes adequately.
What insurance is included with Cycling UK membership?

Third-party liability insurance

By joining Cycling UK, you’ll automatically receive £10M third-party liability insurance provided by Butterworth Spengler Insurance Brokers. This will cover you if you damage another person or their property, for example if you were to accidentally cause injury to a fellow rider or hit a car.  

Legal assistance

Cycling UK membership includes access to our personal injury incident line on a no-win, no-fee basis. Our legal partners Slater and Gordon do not charge a success fee, so members keep 100% of any compensation.
