AAA is announcing Friday that it is extending bicycle coverage at no extra cost to members in Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia and parts of Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. 

That means if a member's bicycle breaks down, AAA Mid-Atlantic will send a service vehicle to take the member and the bicycle to a nearby bicycle shop, home or other safe location.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Some groups opposed to Baltimore police actions in the Freddie Gray case plan to rally in downtown Baltimore Saturday afternoon.

The demonstration is set for 3 p.m. in McKeldin Square near the Inner Harbor. That's about two hours before the scheduled start of the Preakness Stakes horse race at Pimlico Race Course, 5 1/2 miles away.

Sharon Black of the Baltimore People's Power Assembly says marchers from the rally are unlikely to reach Pimlico.
