Timing Chips

If you are travelling to Bowral with your bike on a roof or rear rack, do not attach your timing chip until you arrive in Bowral. The airflow from high-speed vehicle travel will damage the timing chip.

Before the ride, remove the seat-post sticker from the backing paper and fold it around your bike’s seat post so the number is facing back towards rear of the bike.
