British Columbia cyclists who suffer flat tires and other mechanical woes can call the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) Road Assist program for free roadside assistance during British Columbia’s Bike to Work Week and Bike Month from May 26 to June 30.
From May 26 to June 30 – “Bike To Work Week” and “Bike Month” – cyclists who’ve experienced a mechanical breakdown can contact BCAA Road Assist and, depending on the availability of a driver, they’ll be picked up and driven a maximum of five kilometres to their destination or a bike repair shop.
This is the third year BCAA has offered the service, steering more British Columbians toward the environmental and health benefits of cycling. “We get so used to commuting by car that we may not think to change our routines and try something different,” says Ken Cousin, Director of BCAA Road Assist. “And with gas prices soaring, many may just give it a go this year.”
