Cycling event insurance

Cycle events such as bike rides for charity or fun are a great way to bring the community together and encourage people to get active. Organisers of such events must however be aware of the potential risks involved in cycling events, such as accidents. The last thing you want is for third-party claims to be made against you, which could be very costly. 

Here at Event Insurance Services, we eliminate the risk of financial loss by providing you with public liability cover you can rely on. With our cycling event insurance policy, you can focus on the smooth-running of your bike ride.

Your demands and needs

Our cycling event insurance meets the demands and needs of those who are looking to insure their organisation of bike rides for public liability, employers liability, event cancellation or postponement or damage to event equipment.

What does our cycling event insurance policy cover?

Our key covers for cycling event insurance are public liability and event cancellation but we’re also able to provide cover for event equipment and employers liability. Please see below what these covers include:

  • Public liability - this covers the policyholder for accidental injury to a member of the public (including participants or spectators of the bike ride) or damage to third-party property due to negligence of the event organiser. 

  • Event cancellation - this covers the policyholder for irrecoverable costs due to event cancellation, postponement or abandonment. This can cover loss as a result of  adverse weather conditions if the policy is taken out over 14 days prior to the event.

  • Event equipment - this covers the policyholder for equipment they’re responsible for during the cycling event for loss, theft and accidental damage.

  • Employers liability - this covers the policyholder for their legal liability to pay for costs relating to claimant’s costs, expenses and damages made by employees hired for the cycling event (including paid and unpaid staff). This excludes Road Traffic Accident (RTA) related incidents.


Please note that on-road races are not covered under this policy. This policy is not to be confused with ‘cyclist insurance’ designed for individual cyclists. Find out more about exclusions to the policy and what’s covered.
