    Id

    I seem to be doing a lot of solo riding. Even when I'm with a group they may not know important information about me. Where do you keep your ID while riding? And Police and EMTs Where do you look for ID information. I carry a camelback with a business card, it isn't much info, but it is a start. My husband may carry his wallet in his saddle bag. Would they even look in there? Just wondering if the worse happens?

    I have a small, flat pouch (about 3"x4" with a zipper on top) in which I carry an old medical insurance card and my drivers license, along with $5 'mad money'. I carry it in a jersey pocket.

    There is a website called roadid.com that sells id tags for cyclist, joggers and such. They have a dog tag that you wear or wrist and ankle as well as one that clips to your shoe. The neat thing about them is you can get a graphic like mountain biker or road bike on one side and your personal info on the other along with medical info or whether your a organ donor and blood type if you know it.

    I just ordered one and there only like $24.99. Could save your life if your by yourself especially if you have medical problems which I do.

    I just got my dog tags from Poundmaster I got a double set with silencers for under $13.00. They have my name DL# (never put your SSN on anything) Blood type, Allergies and four emergency contact #'s. They look like standard dog tags except I like black and got some red silencers to draw attention to them.

    Tags can be ordered custom imprinted on the following materials:
    Matte Stainless Steel, Bright Stainless Steel, Black, or Brass

    Each Poundmaster Tag comes with a neck chain of the same color. The tags can accommodate up to 5 lines of information with up to 14 spaces per line. If they squeeze, they can get 15 spaces in the middle 3 lines.

    Single Dog Tags with a 24 inch neck chain are priced at $5.00 each.
    Double Tag sets consist of 2 tags and one 24 inch neck chain and
    one 4 inch connector chain and are priced at $9.00 per set. Silencers that fit around the tags can be ordered in Black, Red, Yellow, Orange, Blue and Green.Silencers cost is $1.50 per set of 2 and Postage and handling for each order is $2.25 (In the US)

    I do pretty much the same as Raiyn. I went to the Army Surplus place and had dogtags stamped up. They come in pairs. I attach one to me and one to my backpack. I think they cost me about $7.

    My wife insisted that I wear some kind of id.


    If you want a really nice set, instead of the rather plain ones I have. Look here.

    I'm with gabiker. I ordered an ankle ID band from roadid.com. Got it two weeks ago. I wear it whenever I'm riding.

    I also have information in my helmet.
    When I'm commuting I have my wallet in my panniers.

    The reason I got the RoadID was in case my bike, panniers, and helmet got ripped off after an accident. Some people will take anything. :irritated

    The RoadID has everything the police or paramedics need, except blood type. That information is on my helmet ID.

    Hope I never find myself in a situation where the RoadID is "needed".

    <edit> The cost was $19.95 US - inculded tax and shipping. </edit>

    I wear a road ID called the ankle, it's a velcro band with an engraved stainless steel ID tag attached to it, it's light and comfortable, you just strap it around your ankle over your sock and can't tell it's there. The thing is, it's going with you after an accident and not staying with the bike. when someone takes your sock off, they will find it.

    I ordered the dog tag road id just so I would have it on all the time. I have a tendacy to forget things which I guess goes along with getting older. I think all of them are good though.

    Pouch under seat contains a copy of my passport with my current address and phone number scribbled on it, a phone card, some cash, and a few tools.

    I also made up a sticker with my name, address, phone which I stuck to the inside of my helmet. Hopefully, the medics will think to pry the thing from my head or at least ruffle through my seat pack.

    But, even more hopefully, they'll never have to.

    Cheers,
    Jamie
