Now that the summer riding season is upon us, if an accident occurs it is a very handy to carry a card with all of your vital information including contact information.
Let's look at some of the choices
Have an allergy or medical condition, well a Medic Alert Bracelet is a good plan
Putting ICES in your phone - a good idea perhaps, however, how many of your phones are password protected? Read what SNOPES has to say about ICES
There are some bracelets that you can buy that allow emergency responders to call or go in line and use the pin number on the bracelet. I am concerned about identity theft if it is lost or stolen.
One of the companies that sells these bracelets also has a complimentary downloadable emergency form that you can carry in your wallet and putas much information on it as you feel comfortable with sharing or losing. This is the option we use and might be of some value to some of you.
If you ride solo, join in "Cheers Type" group rides, you know the ones where "everyone knows your name" but nothing else.
Of course the choice is yours but it can make it easier for your fellow riders, EHS, the Police and your families
See the link to pre-print cards. One we fill them out we make multiple copies laminate them and put them in jackets and wallets. Riding as a couple on two bikes we carry a copy of each others card and a set of the other's bike keys.
Spot, riding solo? Consider using a spot tracker (turn off the speed) and send out your link via Spotwalla.
Spotwalla is free through sending a donation helps the casue and your trip routes are stored for as long as you want. I bought our Spot 2's from Best Buy in the States for $14.99 each. They have that sale a few times a year.
