Cyclosure Travel Insurance Launched with HotChillee
HotChillee events The London-Paris and The Alpine Challenge promise to be better-than-ever in 2011 with a new partner on board in the form of cycle insurance specialists Cyclosure.
Cyclosure is the new cycling-specific travel and event insurance from Towergate Wilsons, the leading provider of adventure, outdoors and sports insurance to the British armed forces. Wilsons has been insuring the forces for over 60 years and has already covered a broad range of cycling events and activities across the globe.
Many participants of HotChillee events are seasoned cycle-sportive riders, who travel the length and breadth of the UK and Europe pursuing their passion for this exciting sport.
It has become recognised that many standard insurance policies do not cover the holder for partaking in any cycling activities whilst abroad. Cyclosure offers various levels of cover specifically designed to suit the needs of cyclists – whether cycle touring abroad or on a cycling holiday with family or friends.
Policies are available to cover you for multiple trips all year round or for one-off trips or events. Premiums start from as little as £21 for week-long, single trip cover or £69 for an annual policy. Cyclosure policies also cover you for participation in amateur racing events and include the full travel insurance package to suit the requirements of all cyclists travelling abroad.
Towergate Wilsons Managing Director Rod Breeze states, “I am confident that the strength of our relationship with HotChillee and our joint objectives will see Cyclosure become the insurance product of choice for the cycling community in the UK”.
HotChillee director Sven Thiele believes that the partnership will not only enhance his events, but also highlight an area that some cyclists may neglect. He states, “It’s an area that we feel is very, very important for all cyclists who participte in events abroad. It’s important to us (HotChillee) as an organisation to look after our family of participants on The London-Paris and The Alpine Challenge.This product offers riders much more in the way of cover and peace of mind.
“The Cyclosure packages are aimed at people who ride for leisure and also competitively or semi competitively – abroad. So the packages will have a real appeal to many groups. We’re really excited to have them on-board as a partner to our expanding events portfolio.”
