Cycleguard - unbeatable mountain bike insurance
Mountain bikes really took off in the late 80s, just after the decline of BMX bikes and have held steady since then. In fact, MTBs are still currently the best selling style of bicycle in the UK. If you actively ride your mountain bike, you should be looking at buying insurance to insure against accidental damage and theft. Cycleguard's mountain bike insurance includes cover against theft and accidental damage as well as offering public liability cover as an option.
If you race, you should check that your mountain bike insurance doesn't exclude competitive events or racing. According to British Cycling (2002), mountain biking is the third most popular way of participating in cycle sport with road racing and time trials being first and second respectively.
One very popular way to enjoy using your mountain bike is to take it abroad - not just within Europe but places like the USA and Canada have extensive mountain biking areas with a number of providers offering dedicated mountain biking holidays. Naturally if you're going abroad with your bike, you'll need specialist insurance. Many cycle insurers and most home contents cover will not insure you or your mountain bike outside of the UK, so check or use a specialist like Cycleguard. Our mountain bike insurance offers worldwide cover as an option - and when we say worldwide…we mean it!
Mountain biking is a very physical sport - it's hard on the rider and it's hard on the bike. Our public liability option includes personal accident cover so you're covered should you or your bike suffer accidental damage!
