Personal Transponder – Why buy one?
The Geelong Cycling Club has communicated to the membership our implementation plan for transponder use. We have however neglected to explain the benefits of owning a personal transponder to members. Hopefully the following information will allow members to make an informed decision as too whether you purchase a transponder. The club encourages members to purchase their own, not only for the individual benefits but to help reduce the burden of race day entries for volunteers.
Upon purchasing a personal transponder you are able to go online to the MyLaps web site, create a personal profile and register your transponder. From that moment on all your race results, lap times will be stored in the MyLaps data base that you can access at any time. When the club loads races results your individual race information is updated instantly.

The race information and results can then be analyzed further by looking at your individual lap times. You are also able to also compare your lap times with fellow competitors.
In time Cycling Victoria Open events are to be timed using the MyLaps timing system. There are a number of Championship & State title events that have been embarked for later in the season. This will give you a history of races beyond Geelong Cycling Club ran events.
Should you wish to purchase a personal transponder this can be done on race day with cash. Or you can transfer the money directly into the Club’s back account using the details below.
