RedheadDane said:You guys need an ID to ride your bikes? Or... is it for racing?
Beech Mtn said:It's got contact info and/or medical info, so in case you crash and are unconscious, people know who you are, how to contact your family, if you have a major medical condition, etc. It's a bracelet or necklace with a small metal tag (sort of like a military "dog tag" ID tag) that has the info printed on.

The profile you set up asks for some great information. One thing I did not think about for quite some time is my blood type. I have had annual physical for many years. I could not find blood type anywhere on my physicals about blood type. I called my physician. He did not know my blood type. They suggested donating blood to get typed. Seems like a good piece of information to have if you crash.

$20? wtf? is like $10 going to some charity like livestrong or 'give levi a more normal looking cranium surgery' ?
Beech Mtn said:Actually, if you buy one, they do donate something like $1 or so to charity. Last time I checked, you had a choice of only 4 or so charities, 2 of whom were, guess what - Livestrong or Levi's Forget-Me-Not Farm. Yes really.
RedheadDane said:What website?
Anyway... I (mostly) have my wallet with me when I'm riding my bike anyway... by health security card is in my wallet.
Somehow I think I'd be able to find out essential information by looking up my journal...
RedheadDane said:Well... I feel relatively secure... don't think there's any really bad portholes where I mostly ride (that's... basically just a hole in the ground... right?) and I'm mostly on the biking lane... so...
