I've been wearing a RoadID while exercising outside for quite a few years now. What is a RoadID? A RoadID is an identification you wear so that if you get hurt while out on a jog or on a long bike ride the person who comes to your aide is able to identify you. This can be especially important if you are taking certain medications, have reactions to certain medicines or have a medical condition that a first responder should know about before treating you. Even with a minor injury you body can go into shock and it can be very difficult to effectively communicate. That is where RoadID really shines. The basic RoadID has a metal faceplate that you can customize with emergency contact and medical information. Then there is the interactive RoadID that allows the first responser to call a 1-800 number or go to a website and enter the PIN on the back of your ID to gain access to information that you want them to know (this is the version that I wear).
I rode in the Bike Across Kansas this summer with my daughter and somehow my RoadID didn't come back with me. So I just ordered a new one a few weeks ago and thought I would share how simple and easy it is to have this handy and potentially life saving piece of equipment on you while you are out exercising.There are many different version of RoadID to choose from. I chose the Wrist ID Slim with a white band to match my Apple Watch sport band (I may be a nerd but I might as well color coordinate). But there are many other types of RoadIDs to choose from that you can wear on your wrist, around your neck like dog tags, and even on your ankle.
