Investing in a bicycle insurance policy may be a wise idea for the people living on the car-free island of Sark.
Located in the Channel, the small landmass has seen a sudden rise in bike thefts, the BBC reports.
Editor of Sark Scribe Bob Parsons told the news source that a number of two-wheelers have been taken and then found with missing seats.
“This is not the norm in Sark, it’s virtually a crime-free island and we’d like to keep it that way,” he added.
The tiny island does not have a police force and instead relies upon the nearby Guernsey officers when there is an incident.
However, the constabulary can only travel to Sark when invited by the seigneur, who is lord of the land.
The Isle of Sark is the smallest of the four main Channel Islands, with the distance from either end measuring just three miles across.
