Buying a bike?  HAVE IT REGISTERED AND INSURANCE-COVERED!  THE PREMIÈRE OF “ A Safe Bicycle” PROGRAM FEATURED AT KIELCE BIKE-EXPO

Starting from September, those who buy  bikes  have the option to registering their new machines free of charge on the Polish Cycling Association website  -  bikemonitor.pl. Registration possible within the next 13 months since the date of purchase. Such web-site registration increases the chance of recovering a stolen bike and also offers a cyclist many other useful functionalities.

One of the main registration advantages is a preferential insurance programme offered by  - PZU  and its “A Safe Bicycle” scheme.  The programme means comprehensive insurance coverage comprised of the accident insurance, civil liability insurance, own-damage insurance and luggage insurance. Owing to the personal accident insurance, a  cyclist  or their children, if they  travel together, will receive the necessary support should and of them suffer in an accident.  The third-party liability of the bicycle owners comes handy if the owner causes damage to someone. Casco -  the own-damage insurance, on the other hand offers full bicycle protection (this includes e-booster bikes) and its equipment in the event of an accident, fortuitous events, robbery, theft (including a parking place when a bike was in use - a theft from a street, a park, etc.). “A Safe Bicycle”  it also protects the cyclist's luggage if it is damaged or  lost.

Other interesting solutions a cyclist can use, having registered on the   bikemonitor.pl  website include a  virtual service log-book that provides a reliable ownership information and service history for prospective buyes of a particular  bike. The website can also be used as a networking platform, because  a  cyclist  can contact other  bicycles users as well as identify special risk spots, large-scale theft areas and warn others cyclists. The service can also be used to report a  bike theft. The  bikemonitor.pl  lists stores that offer the  free bike registration.
