As a client you will be covered by AustCycle Insurance, via Cycling Victoria, when cycling with a LBOYB instructor. This is insurance cover for public liability, professional indemnity and accident insurance cover.
Ladies Back On Your Bike, advises members to take out cycling insurance, so as to be covered 24/7, that is, when cycling without a LBOYB instructor.
(Did you know that TAC does not cover you when cycling on a Path?).
Basically there are 2 companies to decide between.
1. Cycling Victoria
2. Bicycle Network.
Contact Ladies Back On Your Bike at firstname.lastname@example.org

Sadly though, neither of these companies, include your bike in this insurance.
To cover your bike against theft look into :
1. Cycle Cover
2. Cycleleash (Not Insurance, but bluetooth app, a bit like ‘find my iPhone!)
3. Bike Sure
