AAA's Roadside Assistance to Include Bicycles

Wave Dreher, 303-210-2904

Colorado is ranked as the second most bike friendly state by the League of American Bicyclists, with 19 bicycle friendly communities. According to Bicycle Colorado, no other state has more gold- and platinum-rated Bicycle-Friendly Communities than Colorado. Bicycling is a $1 billion economic driver in the state-including manufacturing, retail and tourism.

"AAA has been promoting sharing the road and bike safety for many years," added DeNovellis. "With bicycle roadside assistance we can give our members the security and peace of mind they've come to expect from AAA Colorado no matter what 'vehicle' they're using."

AAA membership includes 24/7 roadside assistance that follows the member in any car, as a driver or passenger. And soon on a bike too! Membership offers special benefits and discounts using AAA Colorado's full service travel and insurance agencies as well as discounts at thousands of retailers nationwide. Bike Source, Performance Cycle and Wheat Ridge Cycling will also offer discounts to AAA Colorado members.

Other AAA clubs may offer similar services in the future, but for now bicycle roadside assistance does not extend to all other states, and reimbursement is not available for service provided outside of Colorado. A service vehicle will meet you at a trail head or on a publicly traveled road and transport you and your bike to the location of your choice. Service vehicles are not equipped to repair a member's bicycle or change a flat tire.

AAA Colorado is an advocate for safety and security for all travelers. As North America's largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 54 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive related services, as well as member exclusive savings.

To supporters of the Colorado bicycle community, AAA Colorado is now offering a discount of $25 off a first year's Basic level membership. Enter the discount code BIKE14 at www.aaa.com/membership .
