4) Please note due to the nature of these sessions they will be weather dependant and should the winds/rain be very strong on the day causing a hazard coaches will decide whether or not the session is safe to go ahead. If coaches judge the weather to be unsafe to ride in, parents will be informed a minimum of 2 hours before if this is the case and payment can be re-used for another course or refunded.
