I read it and read nothing that indicates that the rate discount is based on actuarial data and the rate discount may be a sales device by a boutique insurance company to help market their policies to cyclists.

Less claims without discussing costs of claims doesn't mean much. Just as likely bicyclists could be getting a discount because they are expected to drive fewer miles.
