While attending today's Delaware Bike Expo, AAA had a table set up and I had an interesting conversation with the representative there. I asked about bike related "Trip Tics" and he said that they were looking into it but the logisics were very difficult. He did tell me that AAA is seriously considering an emergency pick up service for bike riders. They weren't going to fix flats or make repairs on the road, but were considering some sort of pick up service where a stranded rider could be transported home or perhaps to a bike shop. He further told me that two pilot programs were currently being conducted in south Jersey and out west, I think in Portland.
I'm wondering if anyone from these areas are aware of the program or have utilized the service.
When I did a search on Bike Forums I saw mostly anti AAA posts but didn't read all of the threads. Perhaps we're looking at a turn around by AAA and a new valuable service on the horizon.
