AAA Expanding Roadside Assistance—to Bikers

AAA recently announced that it would offer roadside assistance for bikers in need in Southern New England and Colorado, joining similar programs in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, New Jersey, and British Columbia.

Martine Powers reports on a new service by AAA to its members in Southern New England: "AAA Southern New England announced Monday that members can make bicycle-related service calls; if a bike breaks on the road, tow truck drivers will attempt repairs or transport cyclists to their homes or to a nearby bike repair shop, within a 10-mile radius." To facilitate the service in Massachusetts, "about 30 AAA trucks will be outfitted with bike racks."

AAA Colorado made a similar announcement on the same day, according to a report by Elizabeth Hernandez. "AAA Colorado is expanding its roadside assistance program to cover bicycles, which means members whose bikes break down mid-ride can now call for help….Under the expanded program, AAA will retrieve members and transport them and their bikes to the destination of their choice for no extra charge."
