Dec 02 2019

Many of the OneLife iD team are keen cyclists and we know that wearing a Cycling ID is great way to carry useful emergency contacts or medical information should the unexpected happen when out on your cycle.

Why wear a Cycling ID

We all know that the main benefit of wearing a sports or cycling ID is that the emergency information on it can save your life but what is less recognised are the other benefits. So watch our short video to find out more Click Here.

Benefits of wearing a Cycling ID

Wear a Cycling ID for the other cyclists in your group - we often cycle regularly with a group of cyclists and whilst we recognise and know the members of the group they probably do not have your emergency contacts or know if you have a hidden medical condition. So help them by carrying a form of identification with your emergency contacts and any allergies or hidden medical conditions.  From experience we can tell you it really helps if those with you are able to contact home, let them know what has happened and to provide that re-assurance to you. Don't know what information to put on your Cycling ID?  Then read our Top Tips on the information to include on your emergency ID Click Here.

Wear a Cycling ID for the paramedics or emergency services assisting you - with an emergency ID Paramedics are far more able to provide you with prompt and correct medical information.  AMP stands for Allergies, Medication and Past Medical History.  These are things that Paramedics need to know before treating you and to ensure any support they provide will make you better and not cause an adverse allergic or medical reaction. If this information is readily at hand on your Cycling ID then paramedics can provide you with the correct care.  Additionally, most medical conditions are not immediately obvious so a personal identification bracelet, card or ID tag can provide the right information for the paramedics so they can better understand: Who you are, What's up and What next......

Wear a Cycling ID to reassure friends and family at home - if you are a few minutes late getting home due to a puncture, headwind or a wrong turn do your friends and family worry? If they know that you're wearing a form of emergency identification or Cycling ID this will help reassure your friends and family at home and should an accident happen they will be contacted quickly and know what they can do to support you.
