Does my bike need to be fitted with any type of electronic tag?
Any bicycle (together with accessories) worth more than £1,000 must be fitted with an electronic tag. There must be an external display on the frame to deter theft. The electronic tag must be registered on a database to which police have access.
Can I leave my bike unattended and still be covered if it is stolen?
Bicycles left unattended in any area where the public has access and not being supervised must be locked to an immovable object by an approved lock where any potential theft can be easily seen.
What do you mean by an approved lock?
a lock approved by us, tested by ’Sold Secure’. To find out if your lock is approved by Sold Secure please visit their website www.soldsecure.com or call Sold Secure on 01327264687. Sold Secure is a division of the Master Locksmiths Association.
