Safety & Insurance

Mountain biking is a potentially risky activity. Your safety is our priority, but accidents do happen.

We insist that:

  • You wear a helmet whenever cycling
  • You have your own travel insurance that covers mountain biking and that you carry the details with you when cycling. We are often in remote areas, where rescue is by helicopter rather than ambulance, and this must be covered by your insurance policy.
  • In addition, European citizens must have an in-date European Health Insurance Card and carry it when cycling.
  • You carry your passport / identity card, mobile phone, small first aid kit and emergency money when cycling.

For UK residents, Sportscover Direct provide single trip, annual and add-on insurance policies especially for mountain bikers. Click on the logo below for more details.
