Des Moines, Iowa – Triple-A members in Iowa can now take advantage of a new type of service. The auto club’s Gail Weinholzer says if you’re out bicycling anywhere in the state and have some type of mechanical trouble, you’ll be able to call for a tow truck. So, why is the auto club getting involved with bicycles?
The service technicians won’t change your bike tire for you if you have a flat, but they will give you and your bike a lift back to your car, home or — if necessary — to a bike shop.
If your two-wheeler leaves you stranded on a bike trail, you’ll need to get to the nearest road.
Whether riding for sport, recreation or exercise, she says it’s important for cyclists to know bicycles are considered vehicles and they’re now covered under a club membership.
