Buddy Insurance announces partnership with Bicycle Colorado

DENVER — Buddy Insurance is partnering with advocacy organization Bicycle Colorado to help protect bicyclists from the costs of getting hurt while doing what they love. The Richmond, Virginia-based InsureTech startup is bringing its unique outdoors-focused product to Colorado to help ensure everyone can ride with peace of mind, whether you are out for a ride with your family, commuting or racing.

“Buddy is super excited to be partnering with Bicycle Colorado. Both of our organizational missions of advocating for and protecting people who bike go hand in hand and we are looking forward to helping Colorado bicyclists in any way that we can,” says James Paul, Buddy’s Co-Founder and Head of Business Development.

Buddy created the first and only on-demand crash coverage focused specifically on the active outdoor community. Bicycle Colorado supporters can get coverage for as little as just a day of riding, or coverage for the full year. Should someone have a crash, Buddy pays benefits directly to them based on the care received for associated injuries.

As Bicycle Colorado continues to encourage and promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions and provide a voice for people who ride in Colorado, they are excited to see a company like Buddy sharing in that vision and helping people across the state ride with confidence.

About Buddy Insurance

Founded in The River City of Virginia, Buddy’s mission is to help everyone fearlessly live an active outdoor life. They do this with the first and only accident insurance product that can be purchased for as little as a day, and by donating 10% of their profits to nonprofits focused on outdoor access for all.

  • #BicycleColorado supporter FattE-Bikes is offering a holiday promo for new bike buyers now through Thanksgiving weekend! If you’ve been thinking about getting either a fat bike or an e-bike, now’s the time to do both (and support a local Colorado business while you’re at it)!
  • Love this! Who else rode today? #bicyclecolorado #Repost @bikes4littleton
I left at 31 ° this morning. Contrary to what I have believed my entire life, you can ride a bike at that temperature. However, I miss having hair, because 31 degrees, going ~25 mph down a hill, is really cold when it goes through the helmet and hits the bald head. @bicyclecolo #bicyclecommute #lesscars
  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
