Big Mountain Riding! June 20 2015
We have had a few customers in the shop recently who are travelling to the biking mecca that is the Portes Du Soleil region in the French alps. They are asking for advise over what to take with them and my first reply is Insurance! You can take a whole bikes worth of spares with you but if it all goes wrong high on the mountains, the only way down is by helicopter. These 'rides' cost upwards of £10k and no E111 form is going to cover that. There are many companies out there who cover mountain biking in Europe, I have personally used Dogtag and others I know have used Snowcard. Check with each insurer and make sure they cover what it is you are going to be doing, it could be the best £30 you ever spent.
