Are there any specific security requirements if I transport or store my bicycle?

Yes. For the details on security requirements please refer to pages 13 – 14 of the PDS.


While at home

You must ensure that when your bicycle is left inside your home that your home is securely locked whenever there is no one at home.

If your bicycle is left in an outbuilding at your home (such as a garage) or any other fully enclosed building at your home with walls and a roof, these buildings must be securely locked. In the event of a claim we will require you to provide evidence of forcible and violent entry to these buildings.

If your bicycle is left anywhere else on your property it must be securely locked through the frame of your bicycle to an immovable object by an approved lock.

Away from your home

If your bicycle is left unattended while away from your home it must be securely locked through the frame of the bicycle to an immovable object by an approved lock. Go to approved locks to see a description of the locks we approve.

While your bicycle is being transported

If your bicycle is left unattended if it is in, or attached to, any motor vehicle including while it is in transit it must be securely locked through the frame of the bicycle to a properly fixed vehicle bicycle rack with an approved lock; or locked in an enclosed boot that is not accessible by removing any partition or breaking a window.

Note: All instances involving theft, attempted theft, malicious damage or impact require a police report in order to make a claim.
