    So I have been thinking about a way to get everyone's emergency contact info about each other. Not that we have to, but eventually some day, someone is going to get hurt (unfortunately).

    We get together and ride but if some of you got hurt, I would have no idea who to contact.
    Not a death wish but just a precautionary thought.
    I have thought about a Private Forum that has our emergency contact info, but then thought that may not be wise...

    ...thoughts?

    I tend to share my personal contact info with people I ride with before the ride.
    I'm not sure if my emergency contact is included, but it does have my home phone and address.
    Ride ID type of device (wristband or a sticker) is helpful as well.

    Sounds like a great idea @Mikie, of course we already have each others info(not that we are accident prone or anything but one of these days that bear will probably jump down out of the tree and munch one of us)...

    I have my info on my iPhone as @littlewave mentioned above, my Bell helmet came with a sticker for under my visor where it has my info including blood type as well as emergency contact, and I keep a copy of my DL in my bag (or my actual DL if not riding from home, don’t want it stolen out of my car and/or never know when you’ll get carded for a beer :)). I also give my wife the name of at least one person I am going with for rides outside my area and their number. If going on a destination trip we have even given our wives each others numbers.

    That’s about it.. :geek:

    Could a group buy of discounted Road ID bracelets be arranged?
    They could all have www.imtbtrails.com printed on the bottom portion, and maybe the logo on it?

    Well. I think the last time I was carded was 1986. Good thing I had a fake ID then! :p

    I also have the info in my iPhone, but I wonder how many people actually know about that feature?

    If I go out alone, I always make sure my wife knows the general route and about how long I'll be gone. I ride a lot with limited reception, but I know the spots where I will get it... Like the little cleaning above the spring on Holy Jim last weekend. There is a 50 yard stretch where I get reception. I stop and check the messages and send one to the boss that I'm on the way down.

    As far as creating a database of contact info, that's not a bad idea... I've told my wife that if I don't come home, call emergency whomever, but check here also. The guys on these boards know the mountains and routes better than anyone.

    I ride with my www.FindMeSpot.com tracker when I'm out on the trails solo or fighting traffic on the road solo. I need to get a RoadID. But I normally have something handy for people to use in case they find me. I should do something better though.

    Go to a Yard House and you have a good chance of getting carded. My mom and grandma met me for lunch at YH in fashion island years ago, it was my grandma’s 70-something birthday and they asked her for ID for her cocktail. Other than that with my luck the one time I don’t have it is when I’ll be asked for it, although they know me at Wise Guys now which is my ride to beer spot.

    I was gonna say this site is going to junk.....

    He is going to collect all these names/addresses/#'s then sell them to some boiler room operation. Then we are gonna get constant telemarketer calls.

    I rarely tell my wife where I am but she can track me on the IPhone with the find my phone app that comes with the IPhone. She can find me even if my phone does not have service.
