With an estimated 800 bicycles stolen every single day in Britain, the time has come for a new deterrent against theft; the Biskiple is a flat-pack skip that offers secure storage for bikes.
Entirely anonymous in the urban environment, the Biskiple can be erected in less than five minutes on any street or drive. The design is of particular use to urban cyclists who often have a challenge finding somewhere to store their bicycles.
Designed and built by the ETA, the Biskiple is not intended to replace the need for a good insurance policy but rather to compliment it. A spokesperson explained: “A determined thief can break any lock, but if they don’t know the bike is there in the first place, it makes their job a lot harder.”
The Biskiple can be built for around £100 and less if materials are uppcycled. Plans are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Ethical cycle insurance
ETA cycle insurance offers a sympathetic policy on the storage of bicycles. For example, as long as a shed door is locked, the bicycles stored within do not require any further security. In addition, the policy covers stolen quick-release components and for added peace of mind, claims are handled in-house. Furthermore, bikes are never devalued, no matter their age. Hardly surprising that The Good Shopping Guide voted us Britain’s most ethical insurance company three years in a row.
