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:

Latest mountain biking News and Events

The mountain bike trails of Le Pleney in Morzine are world famous and for very good reason. This little hill with 600 metres of elevation holds some of the most technical, steep, rooty, flat out tracks you can find anywhere in Europe, if not in the world. 

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.

 

A buzzing ski resort packed full of restaurants, bars and alpine culture, Morzine's restaurant scene was once a fairly drab affair in Summer, owners preferring to take the time off or open softly with a minimal menu and hours. Not so now with Summer offering new opportunities, new ingredients, new menus and new, sunny terraces breathing new life into the town. This is driven by the young generation of Morzinoise and British owners who are ready to move with the times.
