We have spent a long time searching for the right insurance provider for our bike & travel insurance needs and we are happy to say we have found them in YellowJersey.These guys provide bike specific insurance and include cover for elements such as race cancellation entry, crash damage, wheel cover and theft from inside vehicles. 

YellowJersey also offer a 60% discount on your second bike when insuring two and who doesn't have more than one bike these days with road, enduro, and downhill cycling all becoming so popular so this is a serious bonus!

For example, we just insured two of our bikes, one worth around £4500 and the other £3500, this cost a total of £355 for the year and comes with a free DNA kit worth £36 so you can identify your bike if stolen. This came in at about £200 less than any other provider we have found so far and that was for TWO bikes!

See below a short summary of the bike insurance cover and what it includes:

The 2017 season in Morzine has now come to a close and what a season it has been. With new tracks in both Chatel, Champery and Morzine, it's safe to say that bike life in the alps has never been better.

The Pleney secret trails in Morzine can be a dark and dangerous place, these root infested tracks intertwine and creep their way down through the dense woods that populate the Pleney hillside.
