UK Cycling Events Team Up With OneLife iD

by Henry Peacock

Riding the wave of this summer's cycling success and growing popularity, UK Cycling Events have teamed up with OneLife iD, the new interactive sports and emergency ID Company. Together they have developed a new cycle sportive ID product to help cyclists 'ride safe' during events, training or the cycle commute.

A Safety Product Designed For Cyclists

UK Cycling Events, Organising 35 events and with 20,000+ riders covering over 30,000 miles in 2012. UK Cycling Events ensure their events are well organised with riders and marshals and supporters knowing exactly what to what to do if something unfortunate occurs. 

To support their focus on safety, the UK Cycling Events team wanted to help keep riders safe not only during their events but also while they were training.  UKCE turned to OneLife iD, the new UK Company who developed the interactive, personal sports and emergency ID, for a solution. As Craig Wilson from OneLife iD said, "too many cyclists are training or cycle commuting without carrying a useful form of ID".

The Barcode Contains A Link To Personal Information

Martin Barden at UK Cycling Events liked the OneLife iD concept as it combined the capability to display personal emergency and medical details along with more enjoyable 'social' functions that would help him develop the UK Cycling Event community.

Martin worked with OneLife iD to develop a new design. The result is the Team UKCE iD band, which offers users the following benefits:

  • A laser engraved wrist band with QR code link to an online personal iD profile which includes 'secure' emergency contacts, detailed medical information and documents. Can be updated with documents, photos or links to other media.
  • Optional engraving of emergency contact and medical details.
  • Waterproof and sweat resistant silicon strap in UKCE green and black
