On cycling challenges, a basic level of bike handling competence is expected.  In very rare cases, for your own wellbeing and safety - as well as that of the others in your group, your challenge leader may decide that lack of fitness or skill levels mean it is unsafe or unwise for you to continue with the challenge. Onward travel would be your responsibility and you will be responsible for any costs involved. If your challenge is cut short due to this, no refund will be due. Adventure Café will assist you as best as practicably possible, however any additional costs incurred by Adventure Café in doing so will be billed to the participant.
