Ankle strap, use it lots.  Not every ride/run but I try to remember it as much as I can.  In fact, this reminds me I need to wash mine.  Ewwwww!

I wear the anklet. Saves me the trouble of forgetting to take my driver's license out of my bike bag and then driving without it...

If you're in a wreck and unable to communicate, the EMT's know who to call. 

Same here, My wife asks me if I'm wearing it everytime I'm heading out for a run or a ride. We had a neighbor that ran and biked everyday and he wrecked his bike one day trying to avoid a duck. He landed on his head (no helmet) The people that saw him had no idea where he lived. It didn't prolong the time for him to get medical help, but it took them over four hours to find his wife. He was in a coma 2 weeks before he died.

I wear the ankle ID. I'ts desolate where I ride in rural Iowa and Illinois, and I'd like to know that someone other than the turkey buzzards could identify and help me if need be.

I wear mine 24/7 unless I have to get dressed up for a dinner or something. It's just a great idea. I wear the wrist ID. It fits like watch strap and is light and comfy. I've heard way too many stories about Jane and John Doe runners/ cyclists around here. I dont want to be one of them.

Thanks again everyone for input on this.

Just placed my order for an ankle version. Figure that will get me used to wearing a time chip.

Yes, I use the wrist one.  I typically train on my own, but even with friends, I wonder if I got hit by a car or crashed, would the heat of the moment make them forget my information.

On my motorcycle helmet, I have a stick on plastic pouch with a little piece of paper that goes into it with personal and medical information. But it seems for that and for biking/ running a proper bracelet would be a good idea. My wrists are going to be getting busy with my new triathlon wristbands, plus an ID bracelet ... "you know you're a tri-dork when ..."

Where can I get these? RoadRunner? Other websites?

I have one and use it, although the first phone # on it is from an old address...two apartments ago! My parents' number is second. I figure that since I'm still single and I keep moving, there's no sense in getting it updated. Should I get married within the next year or so, I'll have the entire thing updated with the new name, new numbers, etc.

I figure that Kenosha is small enough, they'll figure out who to contact eventually, as long as they have my name.

I keep an old driver's license in my gear bag on my bike. Obviously doesn't help on the run, but I never forget it when I bike.

I'm O-Neg.  If I'm going to need blood at any point, I want to give them advance notice so they can have my special order in the chute! 

Plus there was plenty of room on the tag anyway.

www.roadid.com

or

www.irondog.com (you can get a "triathlete" one, and have them engrave you info on the back of it). A little more "style" on these.

Not sure if I'll get a clear answer but should Ontario residents have their OHIP# on their roadID?


I always carry my OHIP card with me (along with my driver's licence). If I was relying on one of those tags (not a bad idea it seems) then I think I would put the number there.

I got the wrist one, took it off the strap, and wrapped the metal ends around my wristwatch strap, so I have it on 24/7. Fortunately, have not had to USE it yet!

No need - if you cannot communicate for yourself you will be still treated in emerg as a John Doe until they are able to contact your POA/emerg contact, who will then be able to give them your health info. Having your NOK info on a Road ID or other form of ID is enough (name and ph #). Too much info on the ID makes for difficult reading in a crisis.

Also, I know it's been mentioned before, but programming your cell phone with an ICE number can save lives, if you ride with your cell phone. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/07/17/AR2005071700879.html

I wear the wrist strap. I always tell my husband I`m wearing it in case I get lost someone can call him and he can come get me. It also contains 2 medications that I am allergic to. I think it is a good idea to have something with your details on it, if something should happen and you are unable to speak or communicate then people are able to notify your next of kin asap.

roadid.com is where I ordered mine from.
