Cyclist/equipment/CTP Insurance: alternative solution...

Postby The 2nd Womble » Thu Jul 05, 2012 8:24 pm

Simple yes or no answer required here. Atm a yes ot no will do nicely (how do you start a Poll btw? :? )

If you could find a comparable insurance package, would you renew your annual B.*.*.*. membership?

It appears you can't in this subforum Dave.

Normally there's a tab underneath the text box that'll take you through it.

Tell yer wot, next time we're on together, set up a poll thread in GD (PM me first) and as soon as it's up, I should be able to move it here.

If it was cheaper for the same cover and benefits, no I'd not renew my Bicycle NEW SOUTH WALES membership.

There, I said it :P

Do you mean the Cycling Australia Silver membership (includes insurance) for $77 where your club gets a little bit vs the Bicycle NSW membership for $99 where god knows who gets what out of it.

I have both this year (got BNSW first in ignorance) and needed Cycling Aus license for club rides. Next year will only have the Cycling Aus one.

Not a club member, although might need to fix that this year.

Does the CA membership cover you for transportation cycling, or for training rides only?

It's been a few years since I reviewed the exclusions but the reason I went with BNSW at the time was that the PL part covered me any time I was on a bike, whereas others had to be training rides.

Could argue my rides to work were training rides, but the return home would be an argument and up to the shops for the newspaper and milk would get knocked back. Given the resistance of insurance companies to parting with money, I felt it was safer not to have to argue with them at what is likely to be a stressful time anyway should a claim ever materialize against me.

Yes I would renew my Bicycle Transport Alliance membership. More to it than just insurance.

They are a WA organisation. If you check the WA forums you will see some of the Board are very active at the grass roots level, e.g., RolandP, Cyclesnail and Fixed.
