Bikeout is incorporated in Delaware as a Limited Liability Corporation. Bikeout does not have investors or other financial backers.
Updated April 29, 2020: In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, Bikeout is indefinitely postponing all planned 2020 large group Overnight events. If you purchased a ticket to a Bikeout large group Overnight event this year, we will begin issuing refunds starting Mon. May 11. If you would prefer to support Bikeout, we are also offering a $165 credit for any future Bikeout offering for anyone that emails us at email@example.com.
Updated March 17, 2020: In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, we will offer full refunds up to two weeks prior to any currently planned Bikeout event. If we need to cancel an event, we will notify riders as soon as possible and offer a refund. If you've purchased a ticket and would like a refund, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For transparency sake, our previous policy:
Tickets sales for a Bikeout Overnight are non-refundable and final. However, if you are no longer able to attend your ride the following options are available to you:
Transfer your ticket to a friend or new rider. Do this by emailing their name, email, and phone to email@example.com. Please note that transfers are not complete until new rider has signed their Bikeout waiver and you have received email confirmation from our team. Bikeout is not responsible for any payments made between riders. The latest you can transfer a ticket is 7 days before the start of a ride.
Transfer your ticket to another Bikeout Overnight experience. If you can no longer attend your Overnight and it is greater than 60 days before the first day of the ride, we can transfer your ticket to another Overnight experience within the next year at no additional cost. If it is fewer than 60 days before the first day of the ride, you will need to pay a transfer fee of $25 per ticket to confirm your new ride. The latest you can transfer your Bikeout ticket to a new ride is 7 days before the start of your original Bikeout.
Bikeout ticket transfers are subject to ticket availability and the discretion of our team. If applicable, you will be expected to pay the difference in ticket price between your original ride and the new ride. Any questions or concerns can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We value the participation of each member of Bikeout and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the event. To make clear what is expected, all attendees, sponsors, partners and volunteers of Bikeout are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct.
The Short Version
Bikeout is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for Bikeout. Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the event without a refund at the sole discretion of the organizers.
Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
The Long Version
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of event activities, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate.
If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from an event with no refund.
The event organizers also reserve the right to remove any attendee without a refund if that attendee endangers herself or other participants in regard to safety, health or any reason that could effect the success of the event for other attendees.
Bikeout partners with Affirm to allow attendees to pay for trips over time, using monthly payments.
What is Affirm?
Affirm is a financing alternative to credit cards and other credit-payment products. Affirm offers instant financing for online purchases to be paid in fixed monthly installments over 3, 6, or 12 months.
Why buy with Affirm?
What is required to have an Affirm account?
To sign up for Affirm, you must:
How does Affirm work?
Affirm loan-application process steps:
1. At checkout, choose Pay with Affirm.
2. Affirm prompts you to enter a few pieces of information: Name, email, mobile phone number, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number. This information must be consistent and your own.
3. To ensure that you're the person making the purchase, Affirm sends a text message to your cell phone with a unique authorization code.
4. Enter the authorization code into the application form. Within a few seconds, Affirm notifies you of the loan amount you're approved for, the interest rate, and the number of months you have to pay off your loan. You have the option to pay off your loan over three, six, or twelve months. Affirm states the amount of your fixed, monthly payments and the total amount of interest you'll pay over the course of the loan.
5. To accept Affirm's financing offer, click Confirm Loan and you're done.
After your purchase, you'll receive monthly email and SMS reminders about your upcoming payments. You can also set up autopay to avoid missing a payment. Your first monthly payment is due 30 days from the date that we (the merchant) processes your order.
How does Affirm approve borrowers for loans?
Does Affirm perform a credit check? Does it impact my credit score?
Although Affirm performs a credit check when you apply for a loan, this won't impact your credit score. However, if you're approved and decide to buy with Affirm, your loan and payments may affect your credit score. Paying on time can help you build a positive credit history.
