Pedalcover, the home insurance provider designed for triathletes, has been chosen by Race Force as its preferred insurance partner for 2017.
Endorsed by Olympic bronze medallist Vicky Holland, Pedalcover is unique in that it provides cover for high-value and multiple bikes under the one home insurance policy.
The policy, which has been recognised by several industry awards, provides cover worldwide, when competing and when in transition making it ideal for Race Force’s clients.
Set up by experienced insurance expert and triathlete Darren Thomas after always struggling to find adequate insurance cover for his bikes, over the past three years the business has gone from strength to strength.
Backed by athletes, governing bodies, bike shops, tri clubs and coaches, Pedalcover has amassed thousands of clients from all over the UK.
Working in partnership, Pedalcover will offer Race Force’s clients 10 per cent off an annual home insurance policy and 20 per cent off travel policies.
While Race Force will offer Pedalcover’s clients up to £20 off the full-price Bike Bus Pro service.
Darren Thomas, founder, said: “Pedalcover is a product of years of industry experience which shows that combining bikes within a home insurance policy can bring about huge savings compared to a standalone bike policy as provided by the likes of Yellow Jersey and Bikmo. To the average homeowner who requires home insurance, it generally means their bikes and kit are insured at no extra cost!
“We are delighted to partner with Race Force for the 2017 as like us they are all active and passionate triathletes who have developed their service around the needs of triathletes.”
Kate Linsley, managing director of Race Force, said “We are really excited to announce this new partnership with Pedalcover. I feel that the insurance provided by Pedalcover enhances the Race Force brand and provides our triathletes with a comprehensive insurance package for home and travel. Race Force service is designed to take the stress out of racing, by providing bespoke bike and luggage transport to/from Europe. Race Force love triathletes bikes like their own. Pedalcover’s ability to cover multiple bikes under one policy will allow our athletes to race with confidence. #TogetherWeRace”
