Cycling Dude's post encouraging us to bring ID when we ride reminds me of this local story in which a bicycle rider remains unidentified two weeks after his death from head trauma inflicted by an aluminum baseball bat. None of the articles I've seen indicate if the man was wearing a helmet or not.
When you ride your bike, carry some identification. On road rides, I always slip my driver's license and a credit card into my jersey pocket. I also wear a helmet but I don't know how effective they are against metal baseball bats.
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
Who are these people who ride without ID? Am I the only male road cyclist in America who just carries his freakin' wallet? I put it in a ziplock bag in my jersey pocket. Unless your wallet is of Costanza-esque proportions, what is the big deal?
