If you're injured in a car accident you can get compensation - but did you know you're entitled to exactly the same money if you're hit by a cyclist, except that most of them will have to foot the bill personally. But research by PedalSure, provider of specialist cycling insurance, suggests a huge 85% are not covered at all.
We’re obviously pretty proud of what we’re doing at PedalSure. We believe we’re offering unique and
badly needed protection for cyclists everywhere, but naturally we don’t expect you to just take our word for
it. So, we’ve gathered together what they’re saying about us in the press and the blogosphere for you
