Any recommendations for insurance? Taking delivery of my new bike today, and think it would be wise to cover it.

Depending on value, just add to house insurance? Worth a call anyway

Got insurance for my new bike for the 1st time myself (after getting creamed last year & my 6 week old bike was wrote off). Went with a crowd called Sundays insurance, costs about 12 per month for a bike in the 4-5k range. Excess is 400 I think and there are lots of caveats in the small print that is a must read- main one being u have to have a Gold Standard 🔐 lock - if you're a roadie this is obviously an issue! Had to register the serial number with them.

Brilliant breakaway stage win for Irish rider Ben Healy in the giro d'italia today. Really starting to make a name for himself with some great performances this year

Superb. He's been in great form all year.

If anyones is curious, ben healy did 370w and 390w normalized at 65kg for 33 minutes at the end of the stage to secure his victory.  Savagery

Great win for Healey after a very good Spring Classics campaign. He's Phil Babb Irish tho, not that it matters as much these days.

Giro D'Italia has a great 3-way battle at the top between Thomas (current leader), Roglic and Almeida with Ireland's Eddie Dunbar sitting a very respectable 4th overall 3 minutes adrift of 3rd place.
Ben Healy slipped to 2nd in the Mountain standing behind Pinot so will have to attack early on today to try to regain that jersey.
3 stages to go and it's set up nicely with a mountainous stage through the Dolomites with steep climbs, an ITT with a summit finish (Roglic could have bad memories of this) before the procession around Rome to finish off.

Terrific finish today and great battle between Thomas and Roglic at the end. All to play for on the hellish tt, cant wait. Money is on Roglic but Thomas going well.

Well the tt lived upto expectations. Unbelievable finish, what with the bike exchange and Roglic dropping the chain. 14 seconds in the end. Thomas will be sick, but i dont think anyone  would begrudge Roglic his win.

Roubaix version for 80

Got a good pair of Ale bibs in the 40-50 range for the summer there, not sure I'd want to be in them all day.
