Community-based cycling insurance provider, Laka, has launched a brand-new scheme enabling cyclists to cover their commute for just £1.

The Laka Club – started in part to support the post-Covid-19 cycling boom – offers anyone on two wheels (including electric bikes) third-party liability coverage, plus a bunch of perks such as discounts on popular brands for the rest of 2020. 

Tobias Taupitz, CEO and co-founder at Laka said: “As a city-based cycling company with offices in London, Bristol and Amsterdam, we’re serious about getting cyclists on their bikes more.

“Following the government’s commitment to get more people riding and a recent spike in bike sales across the UK, the Laka Club will help cyclists protect their commute without breaking the bank”. 


Under the £1 (6-month) Laka Club membership, you get third-party liability coverage for up to £2 million of legal costs if you injure someone or damage their property while using your bike, and also get cover for international trips for up to 60 days (excluding USA / Canada) – great news for anyone itching to ride abroad again.   

With a recent YouGov survey finding that only 11 per cent of people feel that their commute is good for their health and under a quarter of people find their daily commute reliable, the Laka Club is the provider’s newest attempt to make cycling insurance “fairer, hassle-free and affordable”. Exclusive reductions on Hexlox, Beryl and SportPursuit gear are an added bonus.
