Spring is just around the corner, which means mileage - heading out into the great outdoors for long, long rides, and not quite so long runs. The trouble is that I don’t usually carry any ID, so if I were to be in a serious accident . . . well, let’s just say that I’ve had some close shaves over the last year, and if any of them had turned serious, I’d want anyone helping me to get to the important information quickly. Stuff like . . .
- Phone numbers of my Nearest & Dearest
- My name
- Blood group
- The fact that I am a registered organ donor.
After several trips to the Road ID site, I finally took the plunge & placed an order last night - the postage to the UK is only $2.95, and the identity tag itself just $19.99. With the $:£ rate as it is, this really isn’t very much money at all.
And what’s more, they sent me a $1 discount token, which can be used on any 20 orders in the next 30 days. No, this isn’t an affiliate scheme (though they do have one), and I don’t get a kickback for every sale they make on this. I just think it’s a good product and a good idea. So if you’re thinking of getting yourself some triathlon-training friendly identification in the next month, just follow this link to Road ID’s web site, and get a $1 discount.
