Have you ever been out on a long training ride or run and wondered what would happen if you were involved in an accident and were rendered unconscious? How would first responders know who to contact and what medical history you might have? Road ID is a company that was created on the concept that active people should wear ID as part of their gear when participating in outdoor activities. The Corinth Cycling Club is pleased to announce that we are now an authorized affiliate of Road ID.
Road ID is a durable, rugged, athletic, fashionable line of identification gear. Currently, they offer 5 different forms of ID: the FIXX ID, the Shoe ID, the Ankle ID the Wrist ID and the Shoe Pouch ID. Road ID and Corinth Cycling encourage active people who participate in outdoor activities to wear ID and not take the chance of being unidentified in the event of an accident. Each year over 450,000 of us are taken to hospitals unconscious and without ID. It is far better to wear ID and never need it than to need ID and not have it.
Because Corinth Cycling is now an affilate of Road Id, 10% of all sales placed using the banner ad on the Corinth Cycling webpage or the link below will be returned directly to the club. Also, Road ID will donate a portion of every purchase to a charity of your choosing.
