Insurance specialist discusses working in the bike world

In the saddle: Adrian Scott, Head of Cycleguard

Want to earn commission on insurance sales but unsure where to start? BikeBiz talks to Adrian Scott, head of Cycleguard about his penchant for Italian builds and signing up retailers: 

What bikes do you own?

I am a road bike enthusiast with a passion for all things Italian; I have a couple of Colnagos, a Bianchi and a Cervelo. I have built them up myself and following the Italian theme all on Campy groupsets! My favourite rides are when I am down in Cornwall seeing the family. It is a great way to get about the county and provides good undulating routes with pretty good scenery, in my opinion.

Describe your role at Cycleguard and how dealers can get in touch?

I head up the business and am always more than happy to have a chat with anyone in the industry. Dealers can call on 01452 222120, or email

What projects are keeping you busy at present?

Largely it’s development of new products and ensuring we maintain and enhance all our existing cycle products to continue delivering market-leading solutions. Also, I am making the most of this great weather by being out on the bike as much as possible and then having to squeeze in the all the domestic duties thereafter.

How can bike retailers link with Cycleguard? By signing up to our Partnership scheme, bike dealers can not only help keep their customers cycling but also generate some extra income at the same time. We offer every partner a commission for all referrals that generate new business policies and each renewal. And if a customer referred by you submits an approved claim, we give your store the first option to repair or replace.

Why choose to work with Cycleguard over a competitor? For over 15 years we’ve been providing specialist cycle insurance cover for all types and level of cyclist. Throughout this time we’ve also worked closely with hundreds of IBDs, developing an understanding of the market and their needs. I believe our experience and passion for the industry sets us apart from the competition and is why dealers should choose to work with us.
