YBT Tour Cancellation Policy
Of course, we hope that everyone who registers for the YBT Tour will be able to participate. However, we understand that life happens and sometimes even the best plans have to be changed. We also recognize that producing an event like the YBT Tour requires a lot of pre-planning and advance commitments to caterers, hotels, and other suppliers. Therefore, we have attempted to develop a cancellation policy that balances the risks for our riders and our business. We strongly encourage all of our riders to purchase travel insurance through our travel insurance partner Travelex or other travel insurance providers. A modest investment in travel insurance can ease the disappointment and financial hardship if your circumstances change.
