Road ID Bracelet: Hope it never comes in handy

My husband commutes 16 miles a day by bicycle. Come rain, snow, sleet, hail or most often in Reno, wind, he’s out there pedaling. Most of those miles are busy non-bicycle friendly roads. When we moved here we invested in brightly colored clothes, safety lights, and a life insurance policy.

Most recently Joe added another item to his safety repertoire. A Road ID Bracelet. It’s a bracelet that shows his name, along with phone #’s of people to contact incase of an emergency (and medical info if necessary).  If he’s unconscious along the side of the road I’ll be the second to know about it (after 911 hopefully).

I’m mentioning this because the bracelet is actually really cool, and could make a good (albeit slightly morbid) Fathers Day gift. It’s not only applicable to bikers, but runners or hikers as well. Joe’s also been doing some backcountry trail running. Alone. Sometimes at night. He doesn’t carry his ID when he runs.

Joe tells me the one he has is really quite comfy. I think it’s pretty hip. Just hope it never really comes in handy.

    We looked into those, but decided on ID necklaces. Long vacations on a dual sport motorcycle when wallets are packed and not on our person, make you think. I got one but mostly want one for the husband on his solo rides to lessen the chances that he become an anonymous person at the hospital.

  2. What A great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This looks wonderful! My teen just had a major crash on his bike last week on the bike trail. It really scared me. This is the perfect gift for him so if he ever has trouble again and can’t speak for himself there will be a way to contact all of us.
    Thanks for the info and review.

    • Barb – Glad he’s ok. Yikes. Also glad I could be of help, just hope if never really comes in too handy for you either!

    Hey Lindsey, if you think Road ID is cool, you should check out myID. Same concept, a little bit easier on the eyes.
