We will have Ride Leader Training in 2020! We had already been looking at improving the accessibility of the training, and the pandemic made that even more necessary. So, our next offering will likely be an online Ride Leader Training module that can be accessed by anyone who needs or wants the training at any time. We’re hoping to have this done by the end of August.

Remember that if your Ride Leader Training certification lasts until the end of the 3rd year after you completed the training. So, if you completed Ride Leader Training at any time in 2017 you are still certified until December 31, 2020.

AAA Central Penn's 24-Hour Emergency Roadside Assistance program includes members' bicycles. Most people are familiar with AAA's Roadside Assistance program: when a member's automobile doesn't start, breaks down, or otherwise becomes inoperable, AAA will arrive on-scene to tow the automobile to a repair facility or the owner's home. Now, similar coverage applies to bicycles. AAA will send a light-duty service vehicle - equipped with a bicycle rack - to take you and your bike to a repair facility or your house. This Bicycle Service works like any other roadside call and is available to all members, anywhere in the AAA Central Penn territory. There is no sign-up or enrollment. Members can use any of their allotted yearly service calls for bicycle roadside assistance.
