Do you carry id with you when you are out on the bike? The story below is about a guy in the Lake District who has been in a crash but didn’t have any id on him. The police are having terrible trouble trying to find out who he is.
The problem with dog-tags like those are that they are (usually) damned awkward to engrave (with a DIY/pet-shop engraver), & that not many people have the proper ‘belt with a hammer’ number/letter punches
‘SOS Talismans’ come with additional paper strips, so it can be updated easily at anytime.
I also carry a (computer) printed card in my pocket with name/address/date-of-birth/relevant phone-numbers
When I used to court the ex-girlfriend many moons ago and when we would go walking and did the coast to coast walk. She would always carry a NHS medical card, I asked why, me being dumb at the time. She said just in case if an emergency arise, she probably was right.
Mmmm, where’s mine, gonna need it for my forcoming epic double coast to coast bike ride next month.
If on a long ride I carry my debit card and phone so hopefully I could be identifed through those, but like Steve I think i’ll pop a business card with my home addy and number on the back in my little saddle bag just in case.
