Here are some of their stories…

Luke’s story

In the middle of his preparation for Peaks Challenge Cradle Mountain, Luke was riding home from a training ride in the Dandenong Ranges when he lost control on a descent and broke his collarbone.

With the help of Bicycle Network, Luke was able to focus on his recovery and achieve his goal.

Cath’s story

A beautiful day of riding in the Bunyip State Park took a turn when Cath hit a rock on a descent. It left her with a major shoulder injury that required surgery and a long rehabilitation process. Bicycle Network was able to minimise the financial stress and allow Cath to focus on her recovery.

Frank’s story

If you’ve ridden a bike around Melbourne, there’s a fair chance you’ll know Frank, or at least know someone that does. For even the most experienced riders sometimes things don’t go to plan.

Here’s his story:

“I was mountain biking with a few friends after work when I found myself going over the bars and landed straight on my head, knocking out my 2 front teeth. I was taken to hospital and spent four months in a halo and neck brace.

I had private health insurance, income protection and other various insurances, so I was fine when it came to income. However, nothing covered me for dental.

That’s when I gave Bicycle Network a ring, and to my surprise and relief they covered up to $7,500, and all they asked for was the claim form from the dentist. Not only that, they ask me if I needed assistance with any other expenses, like medical, income protection and homecare.

I cannot pay enough praise to Bicycle Network. They are genuinely concerned in your well-being.”
