Road ID was created on the concept that active people should wear ID as part of their gear when participating in outdoor activities. It was started by a couple of guys who began to wonder "why in the heck don't we have ID on us when we go out for a run or a ride?" We looked at our dogs, they had ID. But, if we had an unexpected accident, while running or cycling, we would be in bad shape - nobody would know who we were or who to contact. That freaked us out.It just seems smart, doesn't it?
I keep putting it off. It is not like it is particularly expensive, but it never seems to be a necessary expense. I am sure I wouldn't think that if I actually needed it. I have seen a couple of blogs giving a Road ID away, so I'm going to try to win one first. If I win more than one, I will get one for my dear husband who goes on crazy long bike rides being somewhat undertrained (Sunday he rode almost 80 miles after not riding for two weeks).
Allie at Running Fool is giving one away here. Check it out. Also check out Road ID.
