Cancellation Policy – please read carefully
From the moment you register for a Ride, and in particular the closer we get to the Ride itself, Cycle for Unity starts incurring expenses, much of which are non recoverable in the event of cancellation. For that reason, we have instituted the following cancellation policy.
Cycle For Unity highly recommends that each rider secure cancellation insurance that will cover application and registration fees and other related costs. If you can’t attend a ride for any number of reasons, including training injury, illness, traffic accidents, unforeseen family situations and more, you’ll be reimbursed thorough this insurance according to their terms. Cycle For Unity can not be responsible for cancellations that arise from training injuries and other unfortunate circumstances. The following cancellation policy will apply.
All withdrawals must be in writing via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Policy for One Day Ride Withdrawals, Refunds & Cancellations:
All withdrawals must be in writing via email (to: email@example.com ).
75% of the Program fee is refundable if cancellations occur more than 7 days prior to the ride start date

Fund Raising Goals
- Cycle for Unity is about raising funds for the Charity of your Choice, having and amazing experience and the best and safest Ride possible.
- Accordingly, once a rider registers with Cycle for Unity, the rider becomes a committed rider and is fully responsible for raising the fundraising minimum, whether or not the rider participates in the event.
- If I am unsuccessful in raising the minimum in sponsorships, I will personally contribute to ensure that the minimum amount posted for each ride is transferred to Cycle for Unity.
- Not raising the minimum amount may affect a rider’s ability to participate in future rides.
- Special Incentive:
- Riders who participate in charity events, rides, runs, walks, or marathons for organizations that partner with Cycle for Unity can dedicate their fundraising efforts toward those organizations. These events can include the ALYN Ride, Bike for Chai, Sadnat Shiluv and Melabev, amongst others. Cycle for Unity will send the proceeds of contributions made in your name on behalf of these organizations and any amount raised by you according to CFU’s Charity of Choice model and sent by Cycle for Unity will be applied to your future fundraising quotas on the organization’s behalf.
Certain Special Cases:
- A percentage of any donations raised by you at the time of cancellation will be transferred to the charity of your choice
- In special cases, you may contact the Cycle for Unity office, and, if appropriate, they will refer the matter to our Exceptions Committee.
