What should I do if I lose by bib, helmet # or timing chip? If you have lost any of your race #'s please return to packet pickup, bring all your remaining numbers with you. We will assign you a new number. If you lost your timing chip prior to the race, then a new chip can be issued; however, you will be assigned a new bib # as well.
Where do I place my bib number(s)?
Bike helmet number (if you have one) are typically about 1" by 2" that you will place on the front of your helmet. A bike frame number which attaches to your seat post with zip ties (provided) or will fold around the seat post and stick together, and a bib that will go on the back of your jersey on the left side above the jersey pocket. The bottom edge of the bib# should go along the back side seam, not the front side seam. The front catches a whole lot of air. Use 7 safety pins…one on each corner, and one each at the middle portion of the top and two sides of the bib. Don’t pin through the corner holes or the bib will flap around.
