Sportive insurance and endurance cycling insurance

Whether you organise major sportives or local rides, public and employers' liability cover matters. Here’s why…

Okay, so your cyclosportive isn’t quite La Marmotte or l’Etappe du Tour. However, put competitive cyclists together on roads or trails and some danger is inevitable. What you don’t want is for minor incidents to become uninsured legal nightmares...

That’s why, if you organise cycling sportive, insurance must be a priority. You deserve a special broker – and sportive insurance designed for your event. Only trust cover that protects you throughout planning, organising and running events. In addition, make sure you’re covered for the high indemnity limits often stipulated in contracts these days. Nowadays, a £10m minimum is common, yet many brokers can’t get this underwritten in full by a single insurer. We can, which frees you from another worry.

More on cycling sportive insurance

We’re both professionals, so we understand the risks of amateur and professional cycling. This is true whether it’s a long sportive or off-roading that demands specialist mountain biking insurance.

As you know, mishaps can quickly turn great rides into organisers’ nightmares.

  • A mountain biker is impaled on a branch at a remote location. You may not be responsible for the incident but could be liable if your contingency planning isn’t up to scratch.
  • A major pile-up damages spectators’ vehicles on a public roadside. Then the claims start arriving…
  • A cyclist crashes into a volunteer marshal and both are hurt.

For thousands of cyclists, sportive, endurance cycling or mountain biking provides incident-free enjoyment and challenge. However, as organiser, an uninsured liability claim could ruin your reputation (and your ability to run future events).
