Comments

  • Have both.. Just put the Road ID on as I'm about to head out, Have a Cram tag on one of my pairs of shoes, But never bother to swap it arouns, The Road ID lives in the same case as my watch/hrm so I never forget it
  • ok, now im going to do my bit for blondes- explain what they both are please guysimage....i get the jist they are ID , but where from and what does the tag look like?
  • Loulabell - I was thinking exactly the same as you! I thought maybe I'd logged into the wrong forum. image
  • You have. This is a parallel world in which the London Marathon has NO charity connections at all! image

    Oh, and I've never heard of these things either.
  • Road Id  Sorry Been mentioned a few times in the past (which is where I heard about them)

    May be a Stateside company, But I ordered mine one Sunday afternoon and it arrived the following Saturday Cost me £25 I think including postage

  • I have a roadID

    for the blondes - they are a means of someone getting in touch with your next of kin/emergency services if you are found lying by the roadside.

  • I really like my road ID - and it gives me some peace of mind when dearly beloved is an hour late back from a bike ride - at least I know someone will call when they find him! As long as he's wearing his of course....

    Road ID also has room for you to put details of any medical conditions.

    thanksimage....i gathered that much-lol....just wondered whats wrong with using a bit of paper and writing the details on rather than £25 worth of plastic tag-image i may buy a doggy tag and put it on my lacesimage a nice pink blingy sort.....
  • The Road ID is etched stainless steel

    Which laces Loulabell ? 

     Your training cycling shoes, you race cycling shoes, you trail running shoes, you sprint tri pair or your marathon shoes ?

    That was my point with the Cram alert, It's on one of my pairs of shoes, and I never bother to swap it,Come to go out training now, I reach into the box for my hrm and I stick that on one wrist and the road id on the other...

    (Makes me sound like Meldy with all these shoes)

  • Thanks for the replys they all help
  • i only have one pair of Saucony Dave..whats the wrist thingy like - can you alter the size cos my wrists are dolls size.....image
  • just measured my wrists-4 1/2 inches...
  • These things are taller than you, LLB.
  • Thanks for this, will def be ordering my cram alert.

    they are quite pretty though- but as i have a nike+ band  i could just put details onnthe inside of that!!image..jobs a goodun innit?
  • I recently got a road id, I like knowing if anything happens to me I won't just be a Jane Doe.

    Also handy for races, instead of writing my details on the back of my number each time I just write 'see right wrist'.

    Look online for discounts, I got $2 off which basically paid for my delivery. Didn't take as long as they stated it would for delivery.

    Looking on my bank statement it was only about £12-13 so they exchange rate must be somewhat favourable at the mo!
  • Ah, I get it now. Should I have a roadside accident and there's no one else around, I set off my Cramalert, and the former Olympic runner-turned BBC pundit sprints from his home in Sunderland to wherever I am and tends to my wounds? Very decent of him.
