The Breast Way Round

On 30th May 2011, more than 100 bikers dressed in pink arrived in Glasgow as an epic journey around Scotland ended.  The Breast Way Round, which started in 2008, sees the convoy of mainly women don pink vests, bras and other outrageous decorations for a journey taking in Gourock, Dunoon, Inveraray, Oban, Fort William, Fort Augustus, Inverness, Aviemore and Loch Lomond before ending in Glasgow.  The Breast Way Round is a motorbike challenge to raise £60,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, and was set up by Shirley Ann Barnes after losing a close friend to breast cancer.

Motor cycle tours raising money for charities are now getting more popular, especially the more challenging ones abroad and they can be a great source of income for the charities.  It is always advisable to go on an organised motor cycle tour, particularly if it is in a remote part of the world, then you will be guaranteed back up should anything go wrong.  However going on an organised motor cycle tour does not negate the need to buy a travel insurance policy that is suitable for your needs.  You should make sure that any policy you buy will cover you for motor cycle riding abroad, and if you are taking your own motor cycle to use you need to extend your UK insurance to cover use abroad.  Further more if you have any medical conditions you must declare these to your travel insurance provider and buy travel insurance with pre existing medical conditions cover.
Insurancewith are specialist providers of pre existing medical condition travel insurance and for every policy sold £1 is donated to charity, for example The Haven Breast Cancer Support, Fighting All CancersTogether and Genetic Alliance UK.
