Children's insurance

by s_lim   February 21, 2014  

Hi Folks,

I'm involved with a charity and we're organising a sportive for the end of the (cycling) year. We had a fairly successful first year, but a lot of feedback was that we should allow over 12's on the route. Not sure about the legalities around this and could do with some advice

Thanks in advance

I don't know if there is such a thing. This is why most sportives are 18+, some are 16+ but require a parental wavier.

I don't know what Sky Rides and family events do.

I would suggest you contact British Cycling for advise. Rather than a group of informed (well and not so well) people on a forum Wink

An increasing number of events add a shorter 'family' ride alongside their events so it shouldn't be a problem.

Our club runs a reliability trial each year and we use British Cycling for insurance:

I see it's now £50 + £1.20 per rider, that's gone up a fair bit! Sportive = cash cow Thinking

Also there's http://www.cyclosport.org/event-insurance.html
