Things happen when we least expect them...On October 15th I was out for a ride in the middle of the day. I was in the bike lane when out of nowhere a station wagon hit me and sent me flying 25ft through the air. I was completely unresponsive when the police and EMS arrived. I had to be life-flighted to the closest emergency room. The medical personnel utilized my Road ID to obtain important medical and contact information. Thanks to my Road ID my family was at my side when I finally woke up in the hospital.
In the words of my sister, "purchasing and wearing Road ID was one of the smartest things in the world I could have done." Remember, life is precious. It is amazing what we will spend on bicycles and gear yet avoid a $20 purchase that when needed is invaluable.
