"Disclaimer: I received a set of Road ID tags from Road ID to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!"
I have been wanting a Road ID I could wear on my wrist for quite some time after seeing other runners wear theirs. I run by myself probably at least 75% of the time, so if something were to happen to me, I can be quickly identified and my husband could be contacted.
I ordered a “sidekick” ID for my Garmin and a child’s Road ID bracelet for my son.
Full disclosure, I inadvertently ordered the wrong size for my Garmin. The Sidekick comes in two sizes, and I accidently got the small one. My order came with a $10 coupon to use for yourself or give to a friend – so I quickly used it order the right size. Oops! They come in 13mm and 19mm.
Luckily I don’t have any health conditions that need to be listed, so I actually had quite a bit of room to play with. You can see it right on the screen as you type it out what it will look like. Cool!
I have my name, my husband listed as my emergency contact, his number, and then fun/inspirational stuff on the bottom 2 lines.
I was happy to get one for my son, who does have a health condition that first responders would want to know about. He wears it to school every day now. I let him pick out the color and voila!
The sidekick is perfect for the Garmin or Fitbit models. You can choose silver, black or rose gold ID plates. You can also add fun badges like 13.1 and 26.2, but for me, the sidekick takes up a lot of room so those weren’t necessary. If you get the flex band, it makes sense to add these badges to customize your bling! Here's just a few of the fun ones to choose from.
Road IDs are very inexpensive, but to give you some extra incentive, they are running a black Friday/Cyber Monday sale! Start shopping here and give the perfect gift for the holidays!
