Why does a Mountain Bike Park need insurance?

Mountain biking can be dangerous, but thankfully incidents are uncommon, and most people accept that risk comes with the sport…but claims do occur. There are also more mundane risks such as storm, flood and theft that can affect your ability to function as a business.

Insurance is there to protect and defend you should something go wrong or the unexpected occur. Without insurance you put yourself, your colleagues, your riders and your park at risk. In addition some kinds of insurance are compulsory by law.
