I don't get it.. costs between $58 and $93 for a ride down East Coast?  I'd rather do it in my own time and share a case of beer with some friends.

Well, here is a rough gauge on the type of costings involved if spectrum used championchip..

http://www.championchip.com/products/

Rough costing for ChampionChip Timing for your cycling event based on requirement of around 60 participants:-

Timing system rental and timing services - $6,000

ChampionChip rental - $180

ChampionChip scanning - $30

Bike clip rental - $30

GSM data transmission - $60

so 1 person ciao ciao of also $105 for equipment rental..

so definitely.. it is expensive to run this event time chipped.. but unless they use other vendor... but possibly if there are 5000 people, the economies of scale on the rental would be a reason why they can offer u at $34-63...

The cost is still between $34 to $63 for the 20km ride, without timing chip.. sounds like a lot to me.

why dun we organise a picnic and see the girls cycle there? isn't more fulfilling? because all the hunky roadies in tights will be sprinting to the finish in ultraquick time leaving damsels and hapless females with their soft blowing hair in the wind and thier tight leotards all down there cycling... we can be their moral support and cheer them on to the 5km mark and then we proceed to feast, mingle and wait for the sunset...
