"I just broke every bone in my body, can my buddy take my place on the ride?"

Nope, sorry. You may cancel your registration anytime before the cancel deadline for a small fee. After that you're committed.

The reason we can't bring your buddy in your place is complex but it boils down to risk management. Most folks would jump at a last-minute paid trip in the desert even if they aren't prepared for it. And while we're flattered, that person can pose serious safety concerns to themselves & the group. Would you really want to be out there with sloppy risk management?

You're welcome to call & ask if your pro-racer-buddy can take your place since she's the strongest cyclist on the planet & can finish the trail blindfolded with pneumonia and a hangover. The answer will still be no. Sorry, it's policy.

If you have any doubts please cancel before the deadline, after that we're married.
