Overview of cover provided by Evans

The main benefits of cycling insurance from Evans are:

  • Cover for up to 3 bikes worth up to a total of £12,500 against accidental damage and theft
  • Bicycle hire until replaced, if bikes are stolen or damaged
  • New for old replacement for cycles up to 3 years old - if older then they will be subject to deprecation for wear or tear
  • Optional cycle accessories cover for either £250 or £500
  • Optional Active cover which covers competitions and race fees
  • Optional EU or Worldwide cover for up to 90 days
  • Optional public liability and personal accident cover
  • How much does insurance cover from Evans cost?

    The price of cycling insurance from Evans depends on the value of the bike/s you wish to insure, your postcode, and whether you want any additional cover options like accessories cover or worldwide cover.

    As an example, to insure a bicycle worth £1,500 at a Milton Keynes postcode, with only UK cover and no additional cover options, would cost £11.12 a month or £118 per year.

    If you wanted to add worldwide cover, public liability and personal accident cover up to £2m, and cycling accessories cover up to £250, this would increase the premiums to £18.93 a month or £201 per year.

    However, a more comprehensive policy from Bikmo Plus would cost £9.65 a month. And that is without the exclusive 10% discount Bought By Many has negotiated for members of our cycling group.
