There was a lot of talk about how it's irresponsible to ride without health insurance and that's been me for the last fifteen years or so. The only insurance that I do have is CalStar air lift insurance. For all of you clubs and I suppose businesses, if you can get thirty or so people to sign up, it's just thirty-five dollars a year each and the first life flight is free. Not a bad deal really. I'm trying to find a nine to five with all the perks. But until then, at least my emergency air travel is covered.

I got both health insurance from BlueCross and a bike insurance policy from Velosurance Bicycle Insurance
I never heard before about CalStar and just googled it and read up about it. This looks like a very useful thing to have, actually specially for a price as theirs, which is not expensive at all. I will probably purchase it, but I am not a member of any club or anything. Does it make sense to join one before purchasing a policy?

Only if the club is already signed up or willing to sign up. It's a group discount rate that I get through the local community hall.
