General Booking Notes For Everyone

Cancellation policy
Deposits are non-refundable at any time for any reason. However, second payments are fully refundable until the 16th of June 2021. For further details of our cancellation policy, please see the event terms and conditions.

What is included in the price
Your accommodation, food (including breakfast, all feed stops, lunch on the road and dinner), and all transfers (including baggage) on tour are included. You are responsible for getting yourself to your start hotel and home from your finish hotel at your own expense. Please note any individual booking notes listed below for your Loop.

Paying for your place
We ask for a £250 non-refundable deposit to reserve your place (£500 for Grand Loopers). The rest of the tour cost will be payable in two further instalments. You will be able to pay each instalment online via the Rider Zone.

If we’ve sold out of the Loop that you’d like
If the Loop that you would like is sold out, we will be operating a waiting list system to fill any spare places that become available. Please contact us to join a waiting list or for questions about availability.

Terms and Conditions
Please make sure you have read the general Terms and Conditions as well as the 2021 sign up Terms and Conditions. The deposit is not refundable and we wouldn’t want you to have missed anything important before paying.

Please be aware of the minimum sponsorship that you will need to raise. This is listed in the table above. More information is in the Terms and Conditions. In particular, please note that we ask you to reach 80% of your fundraising target before departure. Participants who have not reached 80% of their target will be asked to pay the fundraising amount themselves or will not be permitted to ride.

We recommend that you organise your insurance immediately. A few people have to drop out each year due to work/family commitments, injury and illness – unfortunately some of those who have had to drop out had not yet arranged insurance. Don’t make the same mistake. More information is in the Terms and Conditions.

Bike Transport
You can book transport for your bike to and from France for £40 each way (with a £10 discount until the end of March). We have pick up locations on set dates around the country (Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Swindon, Winchester, SW, London) and we often add others subject to rider geography. These transfers will be available to buy in February.

Le Loop clothing
Morvelo make our Le Loop cycling kit (you don’t have to buy it but we’d love it if you did). It’s the best kit ever. You will look amazing! It is available to purchase in your Rider Zone.

Single Supplements
We won’t be selling single supplements until June. This is so that we are absolutely sure of availability before we promise anything. (This is later than usual but due to the logistical trickiness of Covid, we need to delay selling single supplements – if you’d like to make a request or have any questions, by all means email Sarah.) They are priced and sold by the night so you can choose to buy none, a few, or as many as possible.

Medical Forms
We will have to organise the medical forms slightly differently in 2021. However, please be reassured that our cyclist medical forms are for confirmation that we have correct information for our volunteer doctors; they are not used for selection purposes. Details of how to complete and upload this form will be on your Rider Zone page once you have bought your place.

Individual Booking Notes

iv. This is a £20 supplement for a coach which we’ve included from Geneva airport to Oyonnax on Fri 10th Sept. The coach will leave Geneva airport at 4pm and arrive in Oyonnax at approx 5pm.
