cyclists. I've had a quick review of some of the policy options and
provided some links below.
Membership with Pedal Power entitles you to free insurance cover through
cyclecover. In addition to injury and public liability, the policy will
also cover you for lost income if you have to take time off work (80% of
income, up to $800 p/week, must exceed 7 days).
A yearly membership will cost you $60 per year for an individual or $100

$90 per year ($80 for concession) and is not restricted to residents of
The NRMA provides 'Transport Accident Insurance' which covers bicycle
accidents involving a motor vehicle - will not cover solo stacks or
prangs with other bikes.
