Unfortunately, it is becoming more and more costly for us to produce our event. We continue to have riders that dispute their credit card charges and receive refunds while not following our no refund and duplicate registration policy.
Please note, if you cannot adhere to the rules of the event and the road, we ask that you do not register for our event.
There will be NO REFUNDS under any circumstances, including, without limitation failure to participate in the Tour of the California Alps–Death Ride® event for any reason, or the cancellation or rerouting of the Tour of the California Alps-Death Ride® event due to reasons beyond the control of the producers of the Tour of the California Alps–Death Ride®. Some of our hard costs such as food, water, equipment and event permit fees occur months before the event and will be paid by the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce regardless if you show up or not.
Duplicate registrations will be cancelled. Registration fees ARE NOT refundable. Please register carefully. If you are a Senior or Junior, please make that notation to avoid a duplicate registration and subject to cancellation.
