THE RISK OF INJURY INCREASES WITH THE SPEED AT WHICH YOU RIDE,
THE HEIGHT AT WHICH YOU JUMP, AND THE LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY OF THE TRAIL
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING INSURANCE:
PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE
Personal accident insurance, including ambulance reimbursement, is available through Mountain Biking Australia (MTBA), the peak sporting body for mountain biking in Australia. This insurance covers you for incidents that occur while riding your bike and race and recreational cover is available.
Please see the MTBA website for more information.
If you don't have MTBA Insurance, ambulance cover is a worthwhile minimum. The hospital in Bright is unable to treat major injuries and patients are transferred to Wangaratta via ambulance or to Melbourne via helicopter. Victorian ambulance fees are generally higher than in other States and Territories. Ambulance cover is affordable and covers you for any ambulance trip in Australia.
Many insurance companies offer this type of insurance. We recommend checking your options.
