I am a cyclist. I generally ride as much as I can.
This does create some tension in my personal life. Safety is a root cause.
So, I have ridden with Road ID’s “ecrumb” application (https://www.roadid.com/pages/road-id-app) for several years. It allows my wife, or anyone else I add, to track my rides via an emailed link. There are similar applications from other companies. The main benefit is if something unforeseen would happen, your last known location is traceable.
Recently, I discovered an added benefit of the application. I lost my phone on my ride.
I had put my phone in my jersey back pocket. That’s fairly common. But this was not a particularly well fitting jersey and I had my repair kit in there as well. And, I had a little off bike incident that apparently dislodged my phone without me knowing it. We won’t call it a crash, since I never hit the ground, but I did come off the bike in a fairly unceremonious way.
As soon as I got home, I realized my phone was missing. We looked on the “ecrumb” and the application reported the last known position as the spot of my little event. When I rode back to the spot, there my phone was, laying under a little bush.
A nice surprise.
