LONDON, August 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The Castle Combe Cycling Festival is pleased to announce that PEDALSAFE, a new insurance product, will be sponsoring the Severn Bridge Sportive on Sunday 26th August 2012.
PEDALSAFE was the brainchild of Alan Steward. The idea came about after his close friend collided with a car whilst out cycling, receiving serious injuries, but had no cycling insurance which covered him. Alan's investigations identified that existing policies on the market were expensive and didn't necessarily meet all the requirements of today's cyclists.
PEDALSAFE, backed by insurers Aviva, Brit and Jubilee, is designed for all cyclists including commuters and competitive and leisure cyclists. It has been created by experienced cyclists, in conjunction with Miles Smith (a large Lloyd's insurance broking group), who truly understand what's needed when it's only 'two wheels and you'.
Andy Cook of Andy Cook Cycling 'As roads get busier, the risk of accidents involving cyclists is tragically on the increase. Even a minor accident can escalate into a claim of thousands of pounds which is why ensuring you have the correct cover is an absolute necessity!'
For just £39.99 per year PEDALSAFE includes…
Physio - getting you back in the saddle when injured, and have to take time off work, or you are involved in a road accident whilst cycling.
Personal ID - if you are found unconscious or worse, the emergency services are able to access details that may help when treating you or in contacting your next of kin.
Anti-theft bike/luggage ID - to deter thieves and identify your bike/possessions
Public Liability - £10,000,000 limit. Includes 'competitor v competitor' which covers you against a claim by a fellow competitor. This is usually excluded under most cycling policies.
Personal accident - generous injury benefits, far higher than most cycling policies.
Legal assistance - to help recover compensation for your losses from an accident which is the responsibility of an identifiable third party.
