Bicycle roadside recovery (Cycleguard Rescue)
What is bicycle roadside recovery?
Cycleguard Rescue is an emergency roadside recovery service for cyclists. It is a unique rescue service brought to you by Cycleguard with the recovery service provided by Call Assist, one of the UK's biggest rescue specialists.
How does it work?
If you became unable to complete a journey in the UK due to a cycling accident, vandalism or irreparable breakdown of your bike, Call Assist will take you and your bicycle to a bicycle repair shop, railway station, car rental agency or your home or alternative overnight accommodation if either are nearer.
It's worth noting that any roadside breakdown must have occurred at least one mile away from your home to be eligible to use your Cycleguard Rescue cover.
How much does it cost?
Cycleguard Rescue costs just £18 per bicycle for 12 months of cover or £13 if you are adding Rescue to a Cycleguard policy which will cover your bike against theft and accidental damage.
Does it cover multiple bicycles?
Unfortunately the policy will only cover one specified bike. If you have more than one bike, you'll need separate cover for each one.
What is not covered?
- If you are outside of the UK
- If the damage, accident or breakdown occurred whilst using your bicycle for racing, time trials or other competitive cycle sport
- If you are within a mile of your home
