E-bike commuters will now be offered roadside assistance from the Automobile Association as the green alternative to driving gains traction.

The AA has extended its Roadservice to cover regular e-bike users with the same service available as that offered during a regular car breakdown.

"If you experience a problem with your e-bike use your AA Roadservice mobile app and help will be on it's way," the AA explains.

"If the issue isn't resolved on the roadside AA Roadservice will recover your e-bike, just as they would if your car broke down."

AA members have also been offered a discount on e-bike purchases and a free service.
