Supporting people who ride is what Bicycle Network does. We’re pleased to be able share this story of Rider Rescue subscriber, John, and his recent experience with the service.
On a cool and clear Friday morning John went out for a ride to Newport in Melbourne's south-west.
As (bad) luck would have it, he copped an irreparable blow-out about 20km from home. John’s first thought was to call his wife … and then he remembered that she was playing golf!
“I was in a pretty isolated spot when I punctured, so I rolled my bike to a nearby location that I could provide to the Rider Rescue dispatchers.
When I rang, the first question I was asked was: ‘Are you in any immediate danger?’, which was comforting to hear.
While it took a while to get across my location, an Uber was eventually dispatched.
After the call, I received a message with the name and mobile number of the driver along with an ETA.
The Uber arrived as promised, and after adjusting the back seat so I could store my bike, we were ready to go!”
The experience for John was a positive one.
“He was a very pleasant bloke and knew exactly where to take me without directions. There was no paperwork”
Many of us have been in a similar situation, caught a little too far from home, without the means of fixing the problem or getting back easily.
Let Rider Rescue save you the hassle. For only $50 ($45 for existing Bicycle Network members) you get up to 10 call-outs per year, at a value of $50 per call-out.
