Health + Injury
Ultra / Adventure racing
does anybody insure their bikes separately, or are they covered by the house insurance?
depends on the value andy
most household policies only cover a bike up to a max value of £1000 which is often not enough
have a look at www.cycleguard.co.uk or www.cyclecover.co.uk (run via CTC) for extra insurance
have used the CTC when when taking bikes overseas
none of them are cheap as bikes are highly nickable and easily damaged
On my house insurance as named and valued items.
that's the other way as cougie says
the man mandelson couldn't silence
cougie which company are you with and is there any limit on the value of named bikes
and does it cover crash damage? i like crashing
Phoned my house insurer (Abbey National) today, im covered up to £2000 but only while my bike is at home. As ill not be leaving it anywhere unattended (except for transition area's) I guess ill take the risk as its an extra £9 a month for further cover and im not sure its worth it.
Erm, which company. That's a good question. I have no idea ! I've got 3 insured - two for £1600 each and one for £500.
I don't think it covers crash damage - but then I don't like crashing as much as some people ! ;-)
And usually the bike comes off better than the rider. Unless its carbon. I hear they can snap in two in a stiff breeze.
(so if anyone has a slightly dinged carbon fibre bike - they'd best give it to me to dispose of)
Glad All Over
