When it comes to securing your bike at home, getting it right is vital to ensure your insurance is valid. To help, we’ve written some handy guidelines on how to best go about it. This is to make sure that you’re always protected, even off the bike.

Where Should I Keep My Bikes?

Depending on the number of bikes you own, you may choose to store them in a spare room within the house, in the garage, or in the shed. All of these are valid options, and any cycle insurance company will have requirements around securing bikes, so it’s important to read your policy thoroughly.
