ETA cycle insurance

ETA cycle insurance offers a sympathetic policy on the storage of bicycles. For example, as long as a shed door is locked, the bicycles stored within do not require any further security. In addition, the policy covers stolen quick-release components and for added peace of mind, claims are handled in-house. Furthermore, bikes are never devalued, no matter their age. Hardly surprising that The Good Shopping Guide voted us Britain’s most ethical insurance company 2016.

    Well this would help me stop getting lost and banging on an extra 20km to a long ride! I need this in my life (and on my bars)!

    Ooh this looks interesting – my phone lives in my bag when I cycle, which means pulling over and taking gloves off every time I need to check directions (and, inevitably, avoiding new and unknown routes as I have a terrible sense of direction). Not really ideal!

    I use the Samsung Health app to record my cycling but I have to keep it in the back pocket of my cycling top so I have no idea what miles or speed I am doing.

    At the moment I just shove it in a pocket and forget about it, but that might change if I win one of these.

    At the moment I don’t use my smartphone while cycling, as I don’t have any way of safely attaching it, but a Finn would solve that problem and would be brilliant!

    We have cycled Calais to the Med for the past 4 years and find our phones indispensable for routes but more importantly accommodation. The bike mounts we had weren’t very secure – we had to use elastic bands over the top – very fiddly, would be great for 2 old timers to have some better ones.

    When I come to London on the train with my Brompton I often print out cycle routes from TFL and then have to stop to check them out and memorise the next section every so often. A Finn mount for my Fairphone would make life much easier. All I would need then would be an app to allow me to see the screen in full daylight!!

    My health/active app is linked to my life insurance – the more active I am the lower my premium. I currently only track step count but this little gadget would enable me to track my cycling too! Win!

    I still live in the 20th century, with a maptrap on my handlebars. Why, I wonder, when I have a satnav for the car? I really would like this incentive to move into the 21st century on my bike.

    Now cyclists can be just as distracted as car drivers, texting on the road and crashing into stuff.

    Great idea. I Strava every mile I do, commute or sportive and have my phone tucked away in a pocket so would be ideal for me. Also I’ve tried mounts in the past but every time i upgrade my phone I need to buy a new one to fit it

    This would be perfect for navigating the streets, plus clocking up the miles on Strava.

    Ideal for mounting on one of the London Santander hire bikes which I use every week. It’ll mean i can listen to directions and look at the map without compromising the use of one hand.

    Not fiddling about in pockets to find phone when needing to use it. Its there in front of your nose and handy when using mobile navigation. Great idea and useful.
