Again for 2018

CHIP TIMING - Again for the Tour D’Apple this year.  Bibbs for all cyclists will include a timing chip - an RFD which will record all cyclists time for their riding their chosen Tour route!  VERY IMPORTANT: for the timing chip to work, all cyclists must ride out through  the start-finish truss AND MOST IMPORTANTLY GO UNDER THE START-FINISH TRUSS WHEN COMPLETING THEIR TOUR.  If you do not leave Blue Ridge Community College by riding under the truss and returning under the truss, CHIP TIMING WILL NOT WORK!!!
