The elite women's T.E.A.M. (The Exceptional Athlete Matters) Fuji cycling team fully supports and endorses Road ID's crusade for safety. Liz Hansen speaks for T.E.A.M. Fuji. "No cyclists should ever take safety for granted.
Your vulnerability is the last thing on your mind when you are out on your bike moving under your own power and feeling like a child with no concerns in the world. We wear bike helmets, wear seat belts, have ID tags on our pets, insure our homes, cars, and even hobby equipment. Yet, carrying identification and emergency information on your person is often neglected. Thousands of athletes are injured or go down unidentified every year, resulting in dangerous delay of proper medical treatment and contact of family members. Cyclists especially need to carry ID with them, even if it is only a piece of paper. On a bike you travel farther and are often alone. Having ID is your lifeline in the unlikely event of an accident. ID will make your loved ones feel at ease, and your mother will thank you. T.E.A.M. Fuji encourages not only female cyclists but everyone to wear ID while exercising!"
T.E.A.M. Fuji, including world champion Christina Underwood, coordinate the 2003 Fuji and Road ID Beginner Category 4 Women's Bicycle Racing Series in the southeast region, a year-long series of fully supported races aimed at encouraging women to consider cycling as a fun form of exercise and competition in the southeast. http://www.teamfuji.net Picutred above: 2003 T.E.A.M Fuji
