I've been wearing a Road ID for years. The company is great with great service.

I agree Kevin, I use RoadID as well. Very responsive company and good quality product. I have a couple of them now with different colored bands to match my bike or mood.

Comment by Kevin on December 17, 2014 at 4:03pm

I used MedicAlert for many years but I recently switched to RoadID because (1) tired of paying for overpriced low quality id bracelets/necklaces, (2) tired of paying high subscription rate, then getting mailings every month asking for donations, (3) the interactive RoadID gives me the same thing as the MedicAlert for much cheaper rate. Goodbye MedicAlert. Hello RoadID!

Bike mount for glucometer NIPRO TRUERESULT TWIST and TRUE2GO. Really interesting for bikers.

Mike: those are triathlon transitions, I take it? And the skill is in changing clothing and gear quickly?

Comment by Clare on June 6, 2014 at 3:29pm

That made me laugh miketosh enjoy the practicing :)regardless.

Comment by miketosh on June 6, 2014 at 12:55pm

Woops, context. I mean T1 practice as Swim to Bike, not T1 practice as in injecting insulin. haha! Just in case anyone wondered why a 20year T1D would need a specific "practice" :-)

Comment by miketosh on June 6, 2014 at 12:36pm

600k, that's craziness! Enjoy. Red Riders too. I've got Open Water Swim, T1 practice, and a short 12 mile bike on the schedule this weekend.

Today was a 20 mile bike, containing 9x 1 mile sprints, T2 practice, then a short 3 mile run.

I've got a 600km ride this weekend near Portland, OR. Looks like I'll finally get a long ride with good weather after so many rainy brevets this season.

Congrats Mike and tmana! Way to go you Red Riders. I've just been released back on the bike as of last Friday. CT scan is fantastic -- back fusion has taken completely and it's all bone back there now (L5/S1). First thing I did was go out on the MTB for 10 miles (which exhausted me, but in a good way). Been missing it SO much. Have a great ride tomorrow, Mike. /\/\
