Club news: ANWB and TCB team up to offer international roadside assistance for cyclists


Publication date: 08 April 2015


From 1 April 2015, the Royal Dutch Touring Club (ANWB) and Touring Club Belgium have teamed up to offer members with bicycle roadside assistance access to this service in the case of a flat tyre or other type of bicycle breakdown if they should be cycling in each other's countries.

A breakdown notification to ANWB’s emergency centre in Assen, the Netherlands, will be forwarded to Belgian sister Club TCB, who will subsequently dispatch roadside assistance. If on-the-spot repair is not feasible, the TCB repair team will take the stranded cyclist, either to the place where the ride started, to the nearest bicycle repair shop or to their destination in Belgium. This service is useful for people living in the border areas as well as for recreational cyclists taking a ride for instance in Belgium’s Ardennes region. ANWB does the same for TCB members stranded in the Netherlands.

 

Other clubs interested in this type of assistance can contact Suzy Bosland: sbosland[at]anwb.nl
