I confirm that at least one person in my group can fix a puncture or fit a tube and that I will not receive a refund in the event that any member of our group sustains a puncture.
I accept that in the event that any member of our group is unable to use the e-bike during the hire period due to mechanical failure, a refund will only be issued on the bike affected and only if you could not restore our journey quickly or allow us extra time to complete the journey or help bring us back to base.

I understand that I am responsible for all equipment my group has hired and I will be responsible for the payment for any damage to (including third party), or loss of, any of the equipment.
