Serk Cycling Beijing
Unfortunately cycling has its dangers. We are often riding on the same roads as cars and trucks and flying downhill at speeds over 50 km/h with just a foam lid on our heads and a few mm of lycra protecting our skin. Many riders will be involved in accidents at some point or another - unfortunately its a given.
Riding in China also has its own unique risks for foreigners - lack of language skills makes communication difficult and most hospitals will not provide any emergency support till insurance or credit card details are provided.
We've organised the printing of ID bands which you can wear on your wrist while you cycle or even when you are running or walking.
In the case you have an accident and cannot function normally the band provides emergency details which could be a lifesaver.
All the proceeds from the sale of the band will be donated to the Masaka Cycling Club.
Here is a sample
Belt- rubber, durable and easily clean
Plate- stainless steel
Black or Masaka Orange
2 weeks after we collect the group order
Each band has your personal details on it. The details are engraved on the plate for durability. A serk logo and Masaka logo will be engraved on the band clasp.
