Our Responsibility

The responsibility of Bicycle Adventures and/or its agents is limited. Bicycle Adventures hereby gives notice that it acts only in the capacity as an agent for the tour participant in all matters, including payment, connected with lodging and meal services, sightseeing tours, and other suppliers of service and transportation, and Bicycle Adventures has no personal liability for payment therefore, either primarily or secondarily, other than as the agent for the tour participant.

In the event that it becomes necessary or advisable for any reason whatsoever to alter the itinerary or arrangements, such alterations shall be made. Bicycle Adventures reserves the right to cancel any tour prior to departure for any reason. In case of such a cancellation, Bicycle Adventures will place recoverable funds into credit on file in the guest’s name, to be used toward any future trip of the guest’s choice for which space is available. This shall release Bicycle Adventures from any further liability. Bicycle Adventures is specifically not liable for non-refundable airplane tickets and other personal expenses incurred in preparation for a trip that is canceled.

Bicycle Adventures reserves the unilateral right not to accept or retain as a tour participant any person whose condition or general deportment, in Bicycle Adventures’ sole judgment, impedes the operation of the tour or affects the rights, welfare, or enjoyment of other participants. Should such a person be required to leave a tour, it will be treated as leaving a tour early per our cancellation policy. Should a traveler be removed from a trip, they will not be refunded any portion of their trip fee even if that portion is unused. They will also be responsible for arranging and paying for all expenses related to returning home and/or changing their travel arrangements. Bicycle Adventures’ obligations with respect to any funds received shall be those of a debtor and not a trustee.

There are certain risks and dangers inherent in any form of adventure travel. Bicycle Adventures assumes no responsibility or liability for any claims or damages, for any reason, arising from these risks. Guests are responsible for choosing a trip that suits their abilities, fitness level, and state of health.

A Release, Indemnity Agreement and Assumption of Risk form must be signed by each guest and returned to our office prior to the start of their tour. If the unaltered and signed Release, Indemnity Agreement and Assumption of Risk form is not received in the Bicycle Adventures office when due, Bicycle Adventures has the right to consider that reservation cancelled and resell your space.

Bicycle Adventures reserves the right to cancel your trip and resell your space if your final payment has not been received by the due date. Terms and conditions of any tour may be amended only by an officer of Bicycle Adventures.
