Hello all,

Having had my bike stolen twice and as i cycle to work everyday, i think it would be wise to buy cycle insurance.
Now i just need a good recommendation, any ideas ?

a friend sent me this link but sound a little cheap:

    The £24 a year isn't for theft cover. It's for legal assistance, plus a few extras, in the case of an accident.

    Find out what's covered on your home insurance.

    Then buy some good locks! See the LFGSS 'locks that work' thread for tips.

    Is it worth considering adding as an item to your house insurance?

    I covered all my bikes up to 3500 for theft and accidental damage at home and away from home under my contents insurance - worked out much cheaper

  • Added my two bikes today to my home insurance. They are two Cubes - road valued at £750, MTB at £2,400. Few "must do's" such as locked shed, locks used inside and similar wherever I leave it. £29 per year the pair - bargain i thought.........
