Upcoming Events

Please Note : In future a clinic will not be definitely booked with the Instructor until a minimum number of deposits are received.  If not enough bookings (+ deposits) are received by the set date the clinic will be cancelled and your money returned.    However once the clinic has been confirmed with the instructor NO MONEY can be refunded as their fees must be paid regardless.  (the only exception will be if there is someone available on a waiting list or the rider can organise a suitable replacement)
