bicycle service from AAA of Southern New England, at no additional charge

I am a cyclist who also owns a car, for which I have AAA coverage. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I received the May 2014 AAA Southern New England "Horizons" from them, saying that at no additional charge, my coverage now includes roadside assistance for two bicycle calls per year, neither of which count against annual road service allotments.

Tandems are excluded; that may be the most significant exclusion.The article says there is information about this at AAA.com/Bicycle or by calling 800-564-6222 .

Other than being a steady customer of AAA over the years, I have no connection to them but I think it would be great if they go nationwide with this kind of coverage.

I would love that! I'm already a member, and I always cycle alone plus I'm single (I'm kind of a hermit, actually) so if I have a major breakdown somewhere I'm going to have to hitchhike back to my car.

I have always avoided becoming a member of the AAA because I remember in the past they were advocates of transferring federal highway funds used for safety and recreational activities such as building bike paths and other non-motorized alternatives towards strictly building more highways. We need both and I wouldn't support anyone who only considered one over the other.
