Are you sure your current insurance is properly protecting your bike?
If you’re like most cyclists, you may assume you and your bike are fully covered under your home or renters insurance policy. But if you ever need to file a claim, you may be shocked to discover that your current policy is filled with exclusions and restrictions that limit what you can get in replacement costs for your damaged or stolen bike.
While it may be true that homeowners insurance personal property coverage could provide support for bicycle theft, some homeowners policies may have low coverage limits for things like sporting goods equipment. A low coverage limit combined with a high deductible means bicycle owners may be faced with the majority of the cost to replace their bikes. Having a separate bicycle insurance policy can ensure that no matter how high the value of a bike, it’s covered in times of crisis.
