Don’t Leave Home Without It
We all have that American Express tag line emblazoned in our memories. And, I must admit, I always take my Amex card with me.
But on Tour de USA 2010, I also took my Road ID.
I’ve used the dog tag version of Road ID for several years riding my bicycle, but for Tour de USA I took the extra precaution of ordering a bracelet and activated the associated online service.
I’m allergic to x-ray contrast dye, and an inadvertent injection would result in an anaphylactic reaction – not a good thing!
Worked Like a Champ!
Since I had no incidents, obviously no issues with bracelet, other than it got dirty out there in the wind for 48 days.
Seriously, though, I now wear the band constantly.
Put One on Your Kids?
I think this would be a stellar idea, especially for young people taking their first road trips – on whatever mode of transportation.
