Member Insurance Program
V-Insurance is the insurance broker for Bicycle Queensland (BQ) and has worked closely with BQ to design this insurance program for members. This insurance cover applies when members are riding their bike on a 24/7 basis, including commuting to work, on a training ride or participating in an organised cycling event (excluding a race), and travel to and from these activities.
