In the poll which InsideOut started about moochers and freeloaders, the question was asked about obtaining temporary, hard to remove bracelets.

I have been a member of a bicycling club in Orange County, CA for about 25 years. This club sponsors two centuries a year. One is called The Ride Around The Bear. It starts at the University of Redlands in Redlands, CA (elev 1400 ft) goes to Big Bear Lake (elev 6500 ft) to Onyx Summit (elev 8000 ft) and returns to University of Redlands. This ride has several rest stops and a lunch stop, I have worked the Onyx Summit rest stop since the start of the ride over 20 years ago, but I digress. The other ride is called The Amtrak and starts at the train station in Irvine, CA and travels down the coast to the San Diego train station, where the riders take a private train back to Irvine. This ride also has several rest stops and a lunch stop. The Bear, as it is affectionately known, has 400 riders, the Amtrak has 1200 riders, of which 800 take the train and 400 have their own way back. The club gives each rider a colored bracelet, this is their ticket to refreshments during the ride, lunch and a meal at the finish and in the case of the Amtrak, their train ticket. In our case, it also allows the sag to easily determine which riders are on our ride and which are just out for a Saturday bike ride.

Anyway, the bracelets are purchased from Precision Dynamics Corp and the web site is and phone 800-255-1865. The bracelets are available in many colors and styles and can be prenumbered and printed with anything you desire.

Hope this helps.
