Cycling UK is the UK’s largest cycling charity, devoting its time to ensuring that cyclists have access to cycling; whether that be through safe roads or through teaching children to cycle proficiently. They are dedicated to campaigning for safer cycling for us all, and when they are not lobbying your local council to install safer cycling facilities, they are implementing nationwide cycle training, and routes for us all to enjoy safely.
During the pandemic, huge numbers of people either bought a new bike or dusted off old ones, which has sparked a golden opportunity to keep these people cycling, safely. However, the sad reality is that with all these people cycling, the thieves have also stepped up a gear. Bike Register for example reported a 28% increase in bike thefts in June 2018 compared to 2019, highlighting the need for insurance.
We partnered with Cycling UK in order to give their members access to exclusive discounts on Pedal Cover’s home insurance. Through our partnership, we also support the charity in their work by giving back through each policy sale.
