Bike Clubs: Bikesure Sweetens The PL

Bike Clubs: Bikesure Sweetens The PL

Bikesure covers clubs for public liability at events

(Vocus) April 3, 2009

In the old days, motorcycle show and event organisers would have public liability insurance that covered all the clubs who attended. These days, post 9/11, public liability is a huge expense and organisers simply can’t afford that level of cover. So every club that wants to attend events has to have its own public liability (PL) insurance. The problem is that PL is expensive – and many clubs simply can’t afford it.

Now Bikesure has launched a pared-down version of PL that’s designed specifically for bike clubs. It has all the cover that a club needs, but costs significantly less.

The new scheme is the brainchild of Bikesure’s club liaison manager Craig Darwin. “We deal with hundreds of motorbike clubs and public liability is a huge issue, especially for the smaller ones,” he says. “We’ve been working closely with them to find out what they specifically need – and we’ve used that information to create a cheaper PL scheme.” For example, Bikesure found there were some parts of a standard PL policy that clubs could do without – such as slander and libel cover. On the other hand, clubs did need cover for the t-shirts, caps, badges and other regalia they bring to sell at events.

“We developed the scheme in conjunction with Norwich Union, who have now signed it off – so we’re ready to roll it out,” Craig adds.    

The Bikesure PL scheme means clubs will pay as little as £110 per year for standard public liability insurance, with up to £1million PL cover. It also covers up to £2,500 worth of club regalia.

The ‘off the shelf’ version of Bikesure’s new PL policy will cover a club for up to twelve events per year. For bigger clubs that may attend more events, or want more than £1million PL cover, Bikesure can build a bespoke public liability policy – and Craig Darwin says it should still be cheaper than what’s currently available.

The Bikesure public liability scheme was developed specifically for the company’s customers and is available to all motorcycle clubs that have an association with Bikesure.

Bikesure, part of the Adrian Flux Insurance Group, is 100% British owned and based. It has a huge range of specialist policies for motorcycle clubs and enthusiasts, including cheap bike insurance schemes for performance and custom bikes, scooters, trikes, quads and bug riders.

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is hosting a workshop designed to help individuals realize a dream of affordable housing. The two day event takes place in Orlando, Florida on January 26-27 of 2013. Jay Shafer is the featured speaker. Shafer has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN’s 360 with Anderson Cooper, and in Time Magazine. Tickets for the Orlando Tiny House Workshop are available online.

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company has set up several events around the US, such as the one in Orlando,Florida, as an introduction to the Tiny House Movement. The January 26-27th workshop offers people a chance to meet with Jay Shafer and ask a series of questions about how to build a house and the small house movement. Shafer‘s focus will be to walk the audience through the building process; from laying the foundation to setting the roof on a Tiny Home. Shafer will also speak candidly about his personal experiences as a Tiny Home owner, which includes using a composting toilet, driving his house around the country, and finding free places to live. These workshops are a perfect way to learn about building one’s own home and down-sizing in a supersized culture.

“For decades corporations like those from the housing, insurance and lumber industries (under the banner of the International Code Council and state) have maintained that our houses need to be of a certain size to be legal. These mandatory consumption laws ensure a vibrant economy, as they increase spending on virtually everything- from heating fuel and property taxes to more trips to Ikea. While the program has been benefiting Corporate America for a long time, now, it wasn’t until just recently that our banks realized its full potential,” says Jay Shafer on why Americans should consider owning a Tiny Home. “It turns out that when a bank tacks even larger house-size requirements onto those already imposed, they can get people to buy more house than they can afford, then, kick them out when they’re unable to make payments. It’s a win-win for banks at the front and the back end of the deal.”

The workshops are a great way for people to learn how to build a home, gain a comprehensive understanding of the Tiny House Movement, or consider why a Tiny Home is a sound investment – even as a second home! As seen with prior events, Jay Shafer expects a wide demographic of people to attend.
