Prudential RideLondon has partnered with Yellow Jersey to offer a bespoke insurance package for participants taking part in the three sportives at the 2019 event on Sunday 4 August.

The event package will cost £25 and cover participants for themselves and their bike.

Highlights of the package include:

  • Crash and accidental damage during the event, and in transit to and from the event, up to £15,000 with cover for a hire bike if the bike is damaged on the way to the event
  • Event fee cancellation
  • Public liability up to £2 million

There will also be the option to upgrade the policy for £5 to include £1,000 of travel expenses.

Yellow Jersey is also offering a 15 per cent discount on their annual Performance and Ultimate Insurance policy to anyone who has entered one of the 2019 Prudential RideLondon sportives.

Ryan Georgiades, managing director of Yellow Jersey, said: “It’s fantastic to be on board with such an iconic event as Prudential RideLondon to offer our unique event insurance package. Our event weekend insurance policy will give peace of mind to the riders that, should something happen, we’ll help them and their bicycle get back up and riding again.”

Hugh Brasher, Prudential RideLondon Event Director, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Yellow Jersey which will give participants in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, 46 and 19 the opportunity to take part in the sportives confident in the knowledge that if anything unexpected happens they have this exclusive insurance package to support them.”
