Other important information: blood type and alergies (if any).

I write my name and home phone number on the back of my helmet in permanent marker.

For what it's worth- when I had my big crash a couple of years ago and my helmet met the road, it pretty much chewed it up and anything I would have had written on it would have been destroyed....

Literally, "dog" tagsMel Erickson

I made the tag at Petco for $5. Most chain pet stores have machines that make dog tags on the spot. Name, address, phone #.

...photocopied driver's license and insurance card, laminated back-to-back with clear packing tape, and my Medic Alert bracelet that contains a phone number (collect call) and my subscriber ID number.
I like this idea.Dave Hickey

Enough to identify me and/or get me home. I used to carry my health insurance ID card and my driver's licence in the States, but in the Netherlands that's not necessary.

Medical neck tag...reads:

[home phone]
[full name]

When I commute, I'm usually carrying my wallet, but for fast rides, I prefer the minimalist approach...

I have the medical dogtag that says "Diabetes Insulin Pump" to explain the device tucked into my jersey pocket. I have name, address & tel # inside my helmet, and I'm usually carrying a blood test kit that includes a diabetic ID card with all of the above information. And I have a sticker on my bike. Like you, I figure that if emergency personnel cannot reach someone at my emergency phone number at the very least they ought to know I have diabetes. With all that medical crap on me I suppose it will be apparent. Still, I gave some thought to having diabetes depicted as a shoulder tattoo. best $20/year that I spend! (nm)Becky

Dog tags, but usually a wallet, toocory
Jul 15, 2003 7:55 AM
I always wear dog tags because of a minor medical condition that might complicate emergency treatment. Usually, though, I stick my wallet in a Rivendell Candy Bar Bag, too. There isn't enough money in there to make it a load.
Use an old driver's licenseTig
Jul 15, 2003 8:44 AM
If you move or renew your license, keep the old one and put it in your seat bag. I keep mine in a ziplock baggie (along with a few dollars, CPR mask, bandages, latex gloves, 2 quarters, etc.) that goes in the middle rear jersey pocket.

I'll use a fine tipped sharpie to provide an updated address if needed, as well as my SSN and a contact phone number or two on the back. The SSN helps at the ER if you're unconsious. I'll even keep an older license in the seat bag as a backup in case something so nasty happens, my jersey bag doesn't stay with me (sh*t happens!).

I have a laminated photocopy of my drivers license with an emergency phone number on the back. I keep one in each seatbag so no matter which bike I ride I'm covered. I also have the same info written inside my helmet.

For $20, you get a stainless steel ID tag attached to a nylon braclet with a velcro closure. I've got on it (among other things) my name, my home phone, my wifes name, her work phone, "organ donor", "No Known Drud Allergies", my health ins provider & account number.
The tag is comfortable, and looks good.
