Public liability insurance is strongly recommended especially if you intend to race.
The Club is affiliated to British Cycling and this affiliation indemnifies the Club against claims made against it on official Club rides. It is strongly recommended that all members are individually covered against 3rd Party liability which can be obtained through one of the following methods: British Cycling membership, membership of the Cycling Touring Club, membership of the League of Veteran Racing Cyclists (see below) or the public liability section of a Household Contents Insurance policy. In all cases responsibility for insurance cover lies with the individual member.
For those riders over 40, public liability insurance is included free with membership of the League of Veteran Racing Cyclists. The cover is valid for both social and competitive cycling at all times and extends to the UK, and all European countries except Switzerland. In addition, members get a racing licence, handbook and quarterly magazine. Membership costs £16.00.
This is entirely optional. A popular method seems to be adding it to the Contents cover of Home Insurance policies. Do check though whether this will completely cover your beloved steed, especially if you’ve upgraded it or built it up from component parts. Cycle policies are now available, cover ranges from theft only to full accident damage and injury cover for you etc. Check carefully what’s included and that you will be able to replace your bike with the proceeds.
