AAA will be on hand for bike repairs during event
By AAA of Western and Central New York
There’s no need for cyclists to worry about a breakdown or mechanical issue at this weekend’s “Ride for Roswell.” AAA Western and Central New York crews will be on hand during the event to assist cyclists. Four AAA trucks will be stationed at three locations throughout the ride in the event of a breakdown. AAA roadside technicians will shuttle bikes and riders to a nearby rest stop or bike shop, back to the University at Buffalo location, or will refill flat tires with air on-site.
AAA said it is “pleased to participate in this community event to end cancer.”
“Ride for Roswell cyclists” can find AAA’s trucks at the following locations, and crews will be dispatched to various locations as needed from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 7:
•East Athletic Fields in Tonawanda
•Isle View Park in Tonawanda
