Lightbulb Suggestion for Group Rides - September 1, 2008, 08:33 PM

Because of a recent wreck on a ride I was on, I have this advice (idea, suggestion, etc). If you are doing a group ride, make sure that SOMEONE has info on you. Your significant others phone number, home number/ drug allergies/ sexual preference . Or keep it in your storage on your bike. Just let someone know where it is before the ride. If the rider down can't talk or communicate, we really should be able to help the EMT's by providing important info. Or even to contact loved ones in an emergency. I now have a card under my seat on the bike. Feel free to rip it off and pull it out if I go down!

This is a very good idea. I'll get something made up, as well...

I always have one on me in my wallet. One of those "If you wanna ride you have it on you" things from my fiancee. I am not complaining. Its a useful thing. I am sorry to hear about the rider. I hope he/she heals up quick.

Yes that is an excellent idea. I know I'd want all info provided to care givers and for my loved one's to know whats going on.

soem may think its corny but i have the ICE info in my jacket, in my wallet, and in the bike to include blood type.you never need it until you really need it


When I came to, the general back-alley ambience of the suite was so rotten, so incredibly foul. How long had I been lying there? All these signs of violence. What had happened? There was evidence in this room of excessive consumption of almost every type of drug known to civilized man since 1544 AD. What kind of addict would need all these coconut husks and crushed honeydew rinds? Would the presence of junkies account for all these uneaten french fries? These puddles of glazed ketchup on the bureau? Maybe so. But then why all this booze? And these crude pornographic photos smeared with mustard that had dried to a hard yellow crust? These were not the hoofprints of your average God-fearing junky. It was too savage. Too aggressive.

Well, here is what I put down:
Name/ address (so you don't have to move me if I am injured), blood type, allergies to meds, prescriptions taken (this is important), cell for my wife, insurance info, any recent injuries, and primary care doctor info. It takes 5 minutes to type it up and laminate it (or put clear tape on it). At least it would help, at best it could save your life.

I definitely dont have that much personal info anywhere but I keep most of it in my wallet and phone numbers listed in obvious ways on my cell phone. I'll definitely get the card thing in my trunk. Thanks for the useful advice.

I'm going to receive a chorus of boo's.. but here are a few other suggestions:

1) Ride your own ride.
2) Ride your own ride.
3) You dont have to go 95mph down the straight aways and 75mph through the turn to sit on your couch at 9pm going, "I had a great ride today."

To some of you, the road is a track. For most, it certainly should not be.

Sorry for just saying it out loud, but I've only been on here a few weeks, and i've seen at least 1 crash per weekend on rides that, "post 1" were supposed to be "easy pace".

I want everyone to be 75 years old and riding the dragon talking about the shitty, heavy, slow bikes they had in 2008.

I am with you, SLO. However, the unexpected can happen at any time. Just pulling out of a parking lot. My first crash was someone else running a red light. This was intended as a suggestion for all rides, all the time. This info should always be on you. I am EFR/ EMT trained and cert'd. Information is key when time is of the essence. Sometimes it is not about your limits, it's about timing. Or fate. Or God. Why tempt any of them with a lack of information?

Basic contact info placed on the bike is a good idea. You can also program an ICE number into your cell phone. That way someone doesn't have to guess which number to call first.

When I went down hard many years ago I was in the hospital for three days before I came around enough to give them a proper contact phone number so that they could let my family know where I was.

When we did our last two group girl rides, I had a spreadsheet made up of everyone's information. Leave it to the women to be organized!

And regarding the comment of everyone riding their own ride, accidents can happen even if people aren't riding foolishly.

Never hurts to have a few people do quick safety checks on on riders and bikes... Be sure everyone has suitable gear, and that the machine appears to be in good working order (brakes, tires, chain/sprockets, brake lights etc...).
