Clarification – Recreational rides

Vätternrundan, Tjejvättern, Halvvättern and Mini-Vättern are open to all participants eligible under each event´s specific rules and regulations. No licence is required to take part in these events as they are recreational rides (“Motionslopp”). There is no official timekeeping and no finish times are published.

General insurance

Every cyclist participates at his/her own risk, but all cyclists are also covered by an insurance by the Swedish Cycling Association, giving basic cover in the event of accidents or disability.

Optional insurance – Startklar

If you are prevented from participating in Vätternrundan due to illness or injury, your fee will be repaid in full, provided that a Startklar or Startklar Plus cancellation insurance was purchased when you paid for your registration. You will need to provide a doctor’s note supporting your claim. Startklar and Startklar Plus also includes accident cover during the ride, as well as during your journey in Sweden to and from the event. Startklar Plus additionally covers accidents during training in Sweden. Startklar costs 155 SEK and Startklar Plus 275 SEK. The insurance is valid for all Swedish non-competitive sporting events within one year from the date of agreement.

For more information about both the general and the optional insurance, please contact Folksam at or by phone on the following number +46 (0)771-960 960 (switchboard).

Overseas visitors are advised to review their own personal insurance policies and conditions for third party liability before travelling to Sweden. This is of particular importance if your country does not have a reciprocal healthcare agreement with Sweden. It is also a good idea to check the insurance coverage for your bicycle.
