I was in Sebring Fl. at the weekend bikefest 12/10/04 thru 12/12/04. We were out in the country side about 50 miles into a 70 mile ride. My two new friends and I came upon a female cyclist and a pick-up truck on the side of the road, so we ask if everything was ok, and she asked do you have a first aid kit. I carry a road rash kit under my spare tube in my seat wedge. So we stopped and she had been bitten by a dog. Bleeding and ripped open. I opened a wound wipe, then a second and placed a 3x5 inch band-aid over the worst of it. She was picked up and taken to the hospital, by the sag van, the dog was picked up by animal control this being his third attack on humans he will be destroyed, after its tests for rabies. I am supprised that no one carries a road rash kit, out of the four of us and the pick-up driver I was the only one with any kind of first- aid. How many carry a first aid or road rash kit? It just doesn't take up that much room.
