More about Cycling in a Velodrome Insurance
Bikes used in the velodrome have no brakes and only one gear to reduce weight and maximise speed, ensuring the cyclist reaches peak speed when cycling around. With stars like Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton bringing home medals, this sport has opened the eyes of the public towards it. This sparked interest has made the sport more available and participation levels have risen over the past years. With high safety standards the risk of injury is low, but if you are thinking of taking on the might of the velodrome, then ensuring you have insurance in place to protect yourself should injuries occur is highly advised. .

Fantastic company, wouldn’t go anywhere else! Great customer service and competitive pricing – 5 stars from me!
Outstanding service! The support provided when my husband had an accident in France could not be faulted.
100% confidence in this company. I unfortunately had to make a claim last year when my golf clubs were stolen. The claims process was straightforward and well supported by SportsCover Direct.
First class! Simple, efficient and professional. The whole process was extremely simple from beginning to end.
I have used SportsCover Direct several times now for sports and summer sun insurance. They are first class at covering pre-existing medical conditions.
