“AAA Washington’s new bicycle service works exactly like its emergency road service for vehicles. A member with a disabled bicycle due to mechanical failure calls the AAA hotline (800-AAA-HELP) and AAA will dispatch service. The member and their bicycle will be transported to a safe location within the distance their membership level allows: Classic – 5 miles, Plus – 100 miles, or Premier – 200 miles.”
This is huge for cyclists who are a total disaster when it comes to basic mechanics—like me! It’s also a great move by AAA to encourage more people to use their bikes instead of their cars. They won’t fix your problem but they’ll get you to a service station, bike shop, or even home. I have a classic membership. That means living here in Bellingham, they’ll be able to get me just about anywhere I’d need to go. That’s pretty sweet.
I’ve had to use AAA more than once in my driving career and now I can feel a little more secure being out on my bike.
