Member Insurance

Membership in Cycling BC includes “secondary” Ride Accident insurance for injuries sustained while cycling and General Liability insurance for sanctioned events and activities.

  • Ride Accident for Injuries/Medical Expenses – included for all members while cycling in Canada or the U.S—it is worth noting that only treatment conducted in Canada is covered. Members should obtain Travel Insurance for out-of-country medical expenses. This does not include lawsuits (see General Liability below).
  • General Liability –  included for all teams, clubs and members for lawsuits alleging bodily injury or property damage (to a vehicle, for example) to a third party during approved Cycling BC sanctioned events and activities, including Cycling BC-affiliated club rides. If the incident takes place during a commute or a personal ride that is not sanctioned, then members should contact their home or renters insurance companies to determine any potential coverage.
  • Errors and Omissions – a Professional Liability policy included for all teams, clubs and members covering certain legal claims for purely economic damages arising out of the performance of a club/member, with no accompanying bodily or property damage.
  • Director’s and Officer’s Liability – optional for clubs to cover their board of directors against potential legal claims.
