Terms And Conditions:
All we ask is that people attending Skills Sessions (one2one & groups skills sessions) pay a 50% deposit in advance of the course, with the remaining 50% payable on the day please. Session deposits are non-refundable but are transferable if Evolve Mtb is notified more than 14 days prior to the booked date. Within the seven day period before the session/ class, bookings are non-transferable. Special cases are always considered however and Evolve Mtb will endeavour to provide the best service possible. Guided group bookings will be invoiced after the session and payment terms are 30 days from invoice date.
On really rare occasions.... courses may be cancelled by Evolve Mtb if there is two or under clients booked onto Group Skills Sessions. Should this occur, transfer to another course date or a full refund will be offered by Evolve Mtb.

Mountain Biking is a dangerous sport and as such carries risk which could result in personal injury or death. Evolve Mtb will endeavour to teach in safe areas and on suitable terrain however, the customer/ rider accepts that risk of serious injury is a part of mountain biking and has the option to withdraw from any activity at any point should they feel uncertain about proceeding.
Should the weather or ground conditions be deemed unsafe by the Evolve Mtb, an alternative date/ session will be offered to suit the customer. Evolve Mtb will make decisions on weather as early as possible however this may be on the morning or during a session.
Evolve Mtb reserves the right to stop any session without a refund should Evolve Mtb representative deem the rider either dangerously unprepared or to have provided inaccurate information regarding their riding experience causing danger to themselves and others.
Should a session be cancelled or cut short due to weather conditions, an alternative date will be arranged at no extra cost to cover missed ground.
We aim to provide the best mountain bike coaching available and give you the best time we can. These terms and conditions have been set to help make sure Evolve Mtb can operate at the very highest level.
We look forward to welcoming you to Evolve Mtb!
