Why I'm wearing a Life Band (and why you should, too)

IMG_7072
I've been thinking of having some form of identification made that I can take with me whenever I bike - a way to inform another party of my identity and the right numbers to call in case of an accident. I know no one wants this to happen to him, but it's better to be prepared.

I saw the ads on the web with Levi Leipheimer and Bob Roll, and so I was thinking of buying a RoadID. Problem is it's such a hassle to get one because they don't have any dealers in the Philippines (as far as I know). That means I have order online and have it shipped here. I have to deal with the wait, the customs, and who knows what other entities. Not that good.

Next in line were dog tags. They're selling these at one of the stalls in our building's lobby. It's relatively cheap and I can even put a sonnet with all the space. Problem is I don't want the cold aluminum dangling from my neck and sticking to my sweaty chest when I ride.

Then, on one of my visits in All Terra at Julia Vargas, I saw the Life Band on display. What is it? In a nutshell, it's a locally made RoadID! That means I can order one and have it ready in two weeks. Nice, huh?

Made by Hydro-Anno Domini, the Life Band has a reflectorized strip to help you be seen when you're riding at night, and is available in black, red, green, blue, pink, yellow and orange.

Interested in getting one? Contact Ron Fuentebella at +63 917 959 3096 or go to their Multiply site for more information. Tell them you were referred by Jovan.

  1. This is a must for us bikers, especially those who hit the trail alone(like me when everyone is busy). And if you're a catholic, I believed it would also be best to have a rosary or any time of holy item attached on our bike. I can attest that it always keep me safe when riding anywhere.
