Mountain biking, or really any type of cycling, is a dangerous sport. But it’s also a ton of fun, so we aren’t going to stop doing it. But that risk needs to be managed for retail shops, brands and the consumer. That’s where insurance comes in.
Do you know what you’re agreeing to when you sign a waiver for a rental? Shop owners, did you know many lawsuits happen years later, just before the statute of limitations expires (file your documents safely!)? What exactly is a shop liable for, and what does the customer need to know?
Podcast host and Singletracks.com editor-in-chief Jeff Barber sat down virtually with Rob and Tori from Outdoor Sports Insurance to talk about everything from the intricacies of shop waivers, to a rise in theft and chargebacks in the bike industry.
