AAA Washington Launches Bicycle Service on July 1

Now AAA members are eligible to have their bicycle transported by AAA in WA, OR, ID and BC
BELLEVUE, Wash. (June 26, 2012) – On July 1, AAA Washington will begin providing its more than one million members in Washington and northern Idaho emergency bicycle service. AAA members now have membership benefits that cover them on their bicycle in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
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.
“We are excited to extend our legendary emergency road service to bicycles,” said John Milbrath, vice president of Member Services for AAA Washington. “People who live in the Northwest are avid outdoors enthusiasts and have an affinity for cycling. We think our members will embrace this new service and have a new level of comfort as they travel long distances from home knowing that AAA will be there if their bicycle becomes disabled.”
Members can go online to and click on “Emergency Road Service” for more details about the new bicycle service. AAA Washington is the preeminent provider of emergency road service in Washington and northern Idaho. Members receive four service calls per year, per person on the membership. Bicycle service calls will count as one of their service calls. AAA membership begins at $56 per year for Classic, which gives the member five miles of towing/bicycle transporting, up to Premier for $124 per year, which provides 200 miles of towing/bicycle transporting. Additional Associate members can be added to each membership level for only $34 per year and receive all of the same benefits as the primary member.
