Better World Club and Breezer announce partnership:
North America's first Bicycle Roadside Assistance
with purchase of Town and Range Breezers

(Portland, OR) -- July 17, 2003 -- Breezer, North America's transportation bicycle company, and Better World Club, North America's environmentally friendly roadside assistance company, have teamed up to make transportation by bicycle even more convenient. The partnership means that new purchasers of Breezer Town and Range bicycles can receive a one-year Bicycle Roadside Assistance membership FREE: a $39.95 value.

"Roadside assistance as a standard feature of a new car purchase is increasingly common," said Better World Club President Mitch Rofsky. "But this option has never been available to bicycle purchasers-until today. Better World Club, known for promoting a balanced transportation system, couldn't be more pleased that this feature is being pioneered by a company known for its transportation bicycles."

This unparalleled offer is available to U.S. and Canadian buyers of Breezer Town and Range bikes who are age 16 or over and who purchase their new bikes between July 17 and December 31, 2003. These buyers will automatically be enrolled in the Bicycle Roadside Assistance program when they register their Breezer warranties. Said Breezer designer Joe Breeze, "We are delighted to be collaborating with Better World Club on this breakthrough program. It makes sense for Breezer owners to receive this benefit, as we advance the bicycle as a timesaving, healthy transportation choice."

In addition to the special promotion, Better World Club is offering a 15% reduction in the price of its bicycle and auto memberships to all Breezer owners and Club Breezer members. Breezer transportation bike owners automatically become members of Club Breezer when they register their bikes. The Better World Club 15% discount is the first of a planned series of benefits to Club Breezer members, providing even greater long-term value to owners of Breezer transportation bicycles.

Better World Club Bicycle Roadside Assistance program includes:

-Two service calls per year, including roadside assistance of up to 30 miles in total.
-Discounts on hotels, restaurants, and other travel services as provided to Better World Club auto members.
-Better World's Travel Cool! program: discounts on green hotels, eco-travel, and hybrid car rentals, and Better World's distinctive Carbon Offset program, which enables travelers to fight global warming.

Also available are bicycle and automobile coverage in one membership. Even the most dedicated bicycle transportation advocates agree it is sometimes advantageous to travel by car. A purchaser of a new Breezer will be able to add on a Better World Auto membership for auto roadside assistance services, at the price of $15.00 (for up to 5 miles of towing), or $30.00 (for up to 100 miles of towing).

More information can be found at the Better World Club website, www.betterworldclub.com, and the Breezer website, www.breezerbikes.com. Information can also be found at any Breezer dealership across North America.
