Class Cancellation and Missed Classes:

If Keswick Cycle must for any reason cancel a class, we will offer a partial refund or a position in a future class at our discretion. Please note that this has never happened and would only occur in an extreme emergency.


We understand that many people have chaotic personal and professional schedules and may wind up missing one or more classes. We offer many sessions of classes and we may be able to squeeze you in to a future class, or we can try to review the information the next week in the half an hour prior to class. There will be no make-up dates or extension of the four week class structure to add missed dates.


Refunds and Cancellations:

If you wish to reschedule your class reservation, this must be done prior to 14 days before the start of class. Cancellations should only occur for emergencies and will be handled on a one-on-one basis. A full refund will be available if 14 or more days of notice of cancellation are given and another student can fill that class reservation.
