What you’re agreeing to:
I recognise and acknowledge that participating in this cycle/event is a potentially dangerous activity and I elect voluntarily to do this and assume all risks of loss, damages, injury or death that may be sustained. Save in the event of any negligent act or omission on the part of the person or entity concerned, none of the organisers or core team members shall be liable to any cyclist for death or personal injury, damage to property or other loss or damage of any nature whatsoever suffered by any cyclist whether arising from participation in the event or otherwise. I will ensure that I obtain all insurance required for participation in this event. I understand what the Thighs of Steel is all about and hereby declare I am made of the right sort of stuff to be a Steely Thighed Cyclist
More boring, but oh so important info:
Thighs of Steel reserves the right to change all, or any, arrangements concerning London to Athens event without notice, nor with any obligation whatsoever to refund.
Oh yeh, that sounds worrying. We hope it would never come to that. Most people write it in their terms and conditions so we’re following suite.
Up to 14 days after signing up for the London-Athens ride you can get a full refund. After 14 days & up to 30 days before the launch day of the adventure (launch days is 6th July), you can get a 50% refund. Less than 30 days before the adventure launch day you're not entitled to a refund.
It’s unlikely we’ll be able to fill every cancelled place as it takes extra work and other cyclists have less time to train and fundraise. This means we’re out of pocket (we run this project on a shoestring!) and more importantly, less money will be fundraised for grassroots projects. If you cancel within 30 days of the ride leaving, we’ll expect you to fundraise money. If you can’t do this for whatever reason, talk to us and let us know why, we’re not going to set the dogs on you.
Paying by instalments? This is important:
If you pay the entry fee by instalments the refund amounts above are not a percentage of what you’ve paid until the date you cancel. The percentages showing what you can reclaim refer to the full entry fee amount.
Request and refund - send an email
The person who signed up initially and paid the entry fee will need to send an email confirming you are formally withdrawing from the adventure to firstname.lastname@example.org
Getting the money back
We will send the money back to the account linked to the card you paid it with. If your card has expired the payment will still be transferred to your account by your bank. If there are any problems you’ll be responsible for bullying your bank to get the money to your account. If the account itself is closed you need to let us know when you request the refund. All fees and charges for issuing refunds are charged to the recipient and if necessary will be deducted from the refund amount due.
Believe it or not cycling and adventuring, especially in a country not familiar to you, is actually pretty dangerous. Lots of bad things can happen. Some of these bad things can be expensive. To prevent these bad things from flinging you into a paupers jail for the rest of your life, we recommend decent travel insurance. It might also be important in case crazy things happen, (like Brexit changing all the rules of travel) and the trip needs to be cancelled. The key things you’re looking to insure, are; you (health), your bike, and trip cancellation.
