Anyways, what do you ladies do with your rings?

I would think a ring on a chain would have a greater chance of being bent. I guess if you are using a roost guard it would be more protected.

I'm not sure how I feel about wearing them on a chain, I guess I'd be concerned the chain might snap and there goes my rings. But I ride through the woods and overgrowth quite a bit, so much of the brush is snagging my jersey, getting wrapped around my boots & about pulling me off my bike - fun - but wouldn't want my chain to get snagged on a branch or thorne bush or something while riding and lose my rings.

I never thought about loosing my finger with my ring on in a crash. Looks like I will leave mine at home now too ... Thanks for the slap in the face to wake me up

BTW I remember way back when taking a "farm safety for kids" class that they mentioned working without jewelry and it had a corny video that showed a guy loosing a finger when his ring caught on the edge of a piece of equipment.

Wearing rings while riding or wrenching is a good way to lose a finger, the hangar where I worked had pretty gruesome posters depicting the finger laying next to the exposed bone .
Or in the case of swelling as is common if you break a bone, the ER will cut you precious memento off.
