Default Roadside Assistance

We often hear about the bad and not the good.

I was commuting home the other day, decided to lenghten my 6 mile commute to 20 because it was such a nice day. Ended up getting a flat on Rosedale Rd. I had pulled my bike into a driveway (no shoulders on the road here). I had pulled my tire off and was in the process of replacing the tube when a motorist stopped and asked if I needed help.

It just amazed me that someone in a car would stop and offer assistance. I have to assume (could be wrong), that he was a cyclist.

It is just good to know that if something happens miles from the nearest service that someone still might stop and offer assistance.

Default roadside assistance for bikes

this company is all about cutting down on greehouse gases.
Even if you don't own a car, 60/year for roadside assistance is well worth it if you are in the middle of nowhere.
