Penquin If you join the Cycle Touring Club;

http://www.ctc.org.uk/insurance

they offer their members third party insurance as an extra, as well as insurance for the bikes etc.

They are the specialists to contact, others ARE available;

http://www.velosure.co.uk/?gclid=CIX...FarKtAod8k4AhA

43.46, but I suspect that is for one person.... whereas the CTC has a couple rate.

or there is;

https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/le...FW7KtAodBQQA-g

so there is a lot of choice out there, all offering 3rd party of around 2 million to 5 million........

Perhaps that's why in Spain twist n' go throttles are illegal. Pedal assist are by far safer, speaking as one person hit by a twist n' go when bike was being 'parked' by being pushed into place. The throttle was accidently twisted whilst being pushed, front wheel launches itself skyward and hits me.

aldra I understand your worry

But

Will you be bombing along at x Kls

I doubt you will ever reach a speed that experienced non electric bikers do on road

My electric bike is not for speed, it helps me up the hills

I can stop, walk when it seems too busy

Irritate other cyclists

Especially in Germany, by riding on the wrong side

But the hound from hell runs on the left

Sorry he is English
It's how it is

And We are too old to get excited

They ride several abreast

So move over

Littlebt Rosalan had a near miss that could have had a terrible result imagine the same situation with a young child that could have resulted in a massive third party claim.

I would be mortified if I caused any harm to another person young or old and this is why I look for third party insurance in the event of a catastrophe help is at hand "insurance"

Third Party Insurance covers the only eventuality I personally care about!

aldra Alan

That may be true

But somewhere along the line comman sense must prevail

There are so many things that can "happen"

I dread to think

If we were insured for all eventualities I doubt we could afford to venture out

Littlebt Thanks all for the input most relative to theft which I am not unduly concerned about as securing them isn't difficult, still would greatly appreciate any Third Party information if it's out there.

rosalan Our bikes are included on our household insurance.

aldra I think you are worrying unnecessary

I doubt you will be travelling as fast as an ordinary bike most of the time,

my son and son in law

Regularly do 100 mile rides in a day on normal bikes

Ou bikes are insured through the house insurance

bognormike have a look at this thread, further down in the cycling forum

https://forums.motorhomefacts.com/234...ric-bikes.html



I think I've also seen reference to the British Cycling Federation or the Cycle Touring Club providing cover for 3rd party laibilities, but I'm not sure whether it covered electric bikes.
