Innovative Solutions

The partnership with Bikmo underlines Triathlon Ireland’s commitment to supporting their members with innovative solutions and products and compliments the Public Liability and Personal Accident cover already included in Triathlon Ireland memberships.

Speaking about the partnership, Chris Kitchen, Triathlon Ireland’s CEO, commented; “Our members are an extremely dedicated group of committed individuals who invest a significant amount of their personal time and money into their passion for triathlon. We have always strongly advised our members to take out separate insurance to protect themselves against event cancellations as well as loss of or damage to their personal belongings. We believe Bikmo’s triathlon insurance solution is a great option for our members.”

Bikmo’s CEO, David George, commented: “We’re very excited to be supporting Triathlon Ireland members as their official cycle insurance provider. As riders in insurance, we bring with us a real understanding of the trust and dependence that triathletes have on their bikes and kit. Our day-to-day focus is on helping our customers get back on the saddle and doing more of what they love with minimal fuss or hassle. We’re looking forward to helping Triathlon Ireland members get the most out of their sport, whether they’re chasing a PB or just out for fun.”

Mr Kitchen concluded: “Bikmo makes insuring bikes, kit and people ultra-simple with their easy sign up process. Their reputation as a specialist cycling insurance provider is second to none and the fact that they are already trusted by thousands of cyclists, insuring over €50M worth of bikes, is certainly reassuring. But in our minds, it is Bikmo’s ethos of putting the rider first and getting them back on their bikes as quickly as possible that truly sets them apart from the rest. We are also delighted to have agreed special rates and savings with Bikmo which we are happy to pass on to our members.”
