Specialist Insurance for Cycling Events

Regardless of whether you are organising a competitive cycling race or a more relaxed route, it is vital to protect yourself from Public Liability claims.

A rider could crash and suffer injuries or a spectator could get injured because of lack of barriers. Either could cite a failure on the organisers to provide a safe environment to ride and take legal action.

In situations such as these, having suitable cycling event insurance in place will protect you from having to pay out a large amount of compensation.

What Insurance Do Cycling Events Need?

If you are organising a cycling race or ride there are a number of things that you should consider adding to your policy.

Public Liability

Included as standard on all policies, this will cover you if a rider or member of the public were to get injured or suffer property damage. If this were to happen and your event was deemed to be at fault, we would handle the solicitors, and the costs of defending you in court, as well as any necessary settlement.

Equipment Cover

If you have specific equipment that you need to operate your event we can provide cover for it. This could range from barriers to the bikes themselves if they are to be provided by the organisers. Should it be damaged before or during the race, or is stolen, we will cover the costs of replacing it.

Employers' Liability

If employing any staff, paid or voluntary, it is a legal requirement to take out Employers’ Liability. This covers you as the event organiser if one of your staff was injured whilst working on your event, with any defence costs and settlement covered by us.

Additional Options Available

We appreciate that some events need a bit of time to set-up and prepare. That’s why we are able to extend your coverage to provide Public Liability cover for the period immediately before the event or for a period of time following the conclusion of the event.
