    Bike Insurance Sources

    I have a few bikes each worth over $2000 etc

    I like to know what can you use to have insurance for a bike?

    Do you put it with house insurance?
    Or is there a type of bike insurance source one can use?

    thanks look forward to the information on this

    Since you're Canadian, look up the insurance information provided by CAA.

    In the US you are pretty much limited to household or renter's insurance. I do have a rider on my household policy covering the bicycles specifically.

    Homeowners will cover it if stolen, but it looks like these will cover it even if you crash it.

    I have no experience with either, but I'm considering some kind of bike insurance too.

    Keep in mind that property insurance is a mixed bag. Insurance companies make money by charging more than they pay out on average. If you're in a high risk situation, it may be worth it. If you're in a low risk situation, you'll likely be subsidizing the high risk members.
