My next memory is an ambulance backing into the emergency room receiving dock 20 miles away. At this point I'm wondering: how did I get strapped to this back board, and where the heck am I?
I soon found out, I was at my preferred hospital! Lucky for me the EMT crew had already noticed my Road ID and took full heed to my instructions. I clearly stated on my Wrist ID that I did not want to be transported to a specific hospital, but rather to one that was better equipped to handle cyclists. I'm so thankful to the Medical Staff, and to Road ID for providing me with what I now consider essential riding gear.
Update: Thankfully I fully recovered and got right back on the bike. As a USAC Cycling Coach, an Official for major bike races, a member of the Southeastern Technical Commission for USA Cycling, along with my involvement in the LAF Livestrong Challenge, I see firsthand, the many times a person's Road ID is working just as they are designed to do. Great job guys!
