|Better World Club to Offer Bicycle Insurance!New Program to be One of the First in America
The Better World Club will soon be offering one of the nation’s only bike insurance policies. Until this year, cyclists in the U.S. could only obtain protection piecemeal through their auto, homeowner, or health insurance. We are thrilled to announce that we will soon be adding bike-specific insurance to our already-groundbreaking nationwide bicycle roadside assistance program. It will include both medical and liability coverage, with optional coverage available for property damage and theft.
We could use your help to get this program up and spinning! If you’re a cyclist, please answer a few questions about our bike insurance by clicking here.
If you know other cyclists or local bike organizations who might be interested, spread the word.
We fight for everyone’s right to use the road, and for their right to be safe while doing so. We’ve supported safe passing laws, opposed the removal of bike and pedestrian infrastructure funding, and worked with the League of American Bicyclists to provide great incentives to our non-driving members. Now that we’ve convinced insurers to give cyclists the same protection as motorists, we’re ready to show the nation that “alternative” transit doesn’t have to mean facing four lanes of traffic with only a helmet to protect you.
|Join Us in the National Bike Challenge!We’re Throwing Down the Gauntlet and Stepping Up to the Plate
Not to mention mixing metaphors. But seriously, folks! An alliance of heavy-hitting bike organizations (including our obvious crush, the League of American Bicyclists) has started a new nation-wide bicycle commute challenge. The program runs May 1 to August 31, and has the goal of uniting 50,000 people to bike 10 million miles. We aren’t sure if they’re ambitious or crazy, but either way, we want in on the action. We’ve signed up a team, and think you should do the same! The user-friendly website helps you track your miles, and participants can win prizes ranging from water bottles to cycling trips through California’s wine country. We have our corkscrew multi-tool all sharpened and ready. Click here to read more!
