Not okay AAA

Click here to sign the petition letting AAA know that cutting the already small amount of funding for transportation alternatives is not okay!  You can make a difference in less than 60 seconds.

From the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy:

“The American Automobile Association (AAA) wants Congress to cut funds that support trail, biking and walking programs in order to funnel that money to the highway system. AAA has forgotten that bicyclists drive, support AAA, pay gas taxes and want balanced transportation systems that provide the choice to get around in a variety of ways.”

If you’re a AAA member, consider calling or writing AAA directly to let them know how you feel.  For a bicycle-friendly alternative to AAA, check out the Better World Club.  We’re not members, but I have been considering it.

    I signed, and now am reconsidering my AAA membership. It’s sort of silly because I only drive about 500 miles per year. But if you break down an 1am it doesn’t feel so silly!

    My boyfriend and I were just saying yesterday that it would be great if there were a AAA for bicyclists. You know, somebody who would come change a flat tire for you etc.

      The Better World Club (BWC) does have an option to add bicycles to the membership. The BWC provides similar roadside assistance service to AAA, as far as I can tell. Thanks for signing the petition!

      And, wow! Only 500 miles a year, that’s awesome!
