    I came across these during Site works…

    http://www.industrialworkwear.com/cat/personal-protective-equipment/safety-helmets/product/hard-hat-id

    I think these are a great idea for anyone who rides a bike to stick on the helmet ? ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess it could even go on the seatpost or elsewhere..

    i agree, given what happened to jules last weekend, if he was on his own it could have been a different story if he had no ID.

    another instant fix for iPhone users, search ’emergency standard card’ in iTunes, this is an app that will create all the required info and than saves as a picture for your lock screen.

    Yeah, but that’s just so that you don’t forget who you are…

    I always carry my BC licence on me, which has my name address DOB and Leah’s emergency contact details. It’s tucked into the back of my phone. I used to have an I’d band, but it chaffed like hell on long rides.

    Funnily enough when I was lying at the side of the road last Thursday I was thinking the same thing. I used to keep something in my pocket but don’t any more. I shall start again.

    Last Thursday afternoon I went down a pothole and went over the bars. I banged my head hard so my helmet definitely saved me. I broke my right collar bone. I was operated on yesterday; had a plate inserted. Will be off the bike at least 6 weeks.
    Keep safe!

    Very sorry to hear about your injury John and wish you a speedy recovery .

    This issue of carrying identity on you at all times when out on the bike was also highlighted many years ago by the late Dave Ball , a club member and like Steph (K) who ran Ist Aid courses for club members , after a series of cycling mishaps to club members . No internet back then but the importance of that was highlighted in printed club news letters .
    As well as identity and contact info in a pocket on your person , another recognised way and as well as , is to put your emergency contact number for the person you should call if you have a mishap , into your mobile phone contacts list under the heading ICE . ( in case (of) emergency ).

    Ps I know many people know that but it is intended for those that do not !

    We’ve got loads of contestants for Wobbly Wheelers this year!
    Unlucky that mate. Hope you recover quickly, and have reported that pot hole!! Hope the bike is okay too. If you need anyone to ride it while you are off the road, let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚
