SAFETY FIRST

AT BIKE COMPANY WE PLACE GREAT EMPHASIS ON THE SAFETY AND SECURITY IN OUR TRIPS

Accidents and incidents can never be completely eliminated in travels of adventurous nature. But we believe that with a good understanding of the hazards, risks assessment and well trained guides with good judgement, accidents and incidents can be minimised.
DAY TOURS
The trails have been studied and designed for safe pedalling, leading through its most beautiful areas. We limit group sizes to 8-12 riders for one guide, thereby ensuring safety and personal attention. All our bikes are new and well maintained and helmets are provided.
GUIDED MULTI-DAY TOURS
Our multi-day trips take place in the countryside of Iceland. If you choose to participate in our tours it is up to you to ride well within your limits and be mindful of your own safety and your actions that may affect the safety of the group. Participants must make sure to stay hydrated, nourished and rested. Any alcohol or drug consumption is prohibited during our rides. Our guides have first aid training but if a serious injury occurs they will call local Search and Rescue services at the cost of the participant. Personal medical travel insurance is mandatory.
Our safety and security policy focuses on the following fundamental issues:
• Detailed route-planning
• Active risk analysis, management and contingency planning
• Reliable communication
• First-aid and evacuation procedures
We also acknowledge the importance of safety and security issues with respect to the more conventional parts of our trips. Such as general hygiene, 4×4 transports and food preparation. All of these aspects and more have been dealt with in our risk management plan. The risk factors are identified and analysed, guidelines for management and observation are outlined and contingency plans set out.
