MAJOR bike insurers are offering free commuting cover to get people on two wheels during Ride to Work Week.
The offer – from insurers including Ageas, Bennetts, Harley-Davidson Insurance Services and Carole Nash – is open to customers who already have leisure cover, allowing them to commute by bike at no extra charge during the national Ride to Work Week from Monday June 19th to Friday June 23rd.
Stevie Muir, who manages the Ride to Work Week campaign for organisers the Motorcycle Industry Association, said: “We are delighted these companies are encouraging leisure riders to try commuting on their bikes during Ride to Work Week, by extending their cover.
“Around two-thirds of motorcyclists only opt for social and domestic cover and so are missing out on the huge benefits of commuting on their bikes. These include saving time, money and enjoying easier parking. Regular commuters are also likely to become more skilled road users and the best reason of all is that it’s just more fun.”
