Road ID and the Tour de France

2 July 2011

It’s my favorite time of year! I rolled myself out of bed this morning, stumbled to the kitchen, poured a cup of coffee, and worked my way to the couch. There is very little variation in that routine from my normal mornings, except this morning instead of turning on The Current, I flipped on the television and tuned into Versus. Unlike so many years in the past, I’m able to watch the Tour de France with a cup of coffee in my hand. While I’ll miss feeling the rush of the peloton as it passes, watching attacks and counters, and seeing the suffering up close an in person as the sprinters try to make their way over the Alps, I am excited about being able to watch an entire day’s coverage, rather than a few seconds as the race flies by.

If you watch this year’s Tour, you’ll see many advertisements for one of my favorite products – Road ID. I’ve written about the importance of wearing a Road ID in the past, telling the story of my friend Ryan’s bad accident in Spain earlier this year. Ryan is now in a rehab facility in Boston, Massachusetts, where I was able to visit him earlier this month. He is progressing well, but has a long ways to go. Last weekend, his sister hosted a benefit ride and silent auction, which I was disappointed not to be able to attend.

This blog is part of the Road ID affiliate program. I will be donating every penny of my proceeds from RoadIDs purchased from this site or the link listed below during the 2011 Tour de France to Ryan’s Road to Recovery.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a RoadID in the past, whether for yourself or for a friend or family member, now is the time. Protect yourself or your loved ones, and help Ryan on his road to walk again.

If you already have a RoadID, but want to help, you can help spread the word. Share the link at
