Only recently, our lead editor Robert, whilst cycling with a friend, witnessed them hit by a car and helicoptered off to hospital, thankfully surviving with a few cracks ribs, lost teeth, significant facial cuts and bruises all over the body – but they survived.
The founder of Rider Alert found themselves in a horrible accident, when a wild turkey suddenly flew across his path, sending him flipping onto his head. He ended up unconscious with serious injuries and it was luckily on a day he was riding with others, which he rarely did. His phone was found far away and he could not remember his code in the ambulance. This event it what led to his creation of the Rider Alert device. The simple fact is that we need to maximise the chances of getting help, should the worst occur.
Rider Alert is a life saving device. With 24/7 live fall detection and immediate access to on-call safety specialists, the rider alert device is set up by the user, then it automatically notifies emergency services and calls your loved ones when a crash occurs.
