Transfer Policy for Cascade Rides

Transfer Policy for Cascade Rides


  • Registrants may forfeit their registration (a “transfer”) to another rider of their choice.
  • There is a nominal processing fee to transfer (may vary by event).
  • Once a transfer is purchased, a transfer code is generated and emailed to the original registrant. This code is non-refundable and expires at the end of the online registration period if not redeemed.
  • A purchased transfer code is not an active registration until redeemed. How to redeem details are listed below.
  • The sale of a transfer code is considered a private transaction, and the Cascade Bicycle Club is not responsible for any issues as such.
  • For applicable events that offer return transportation, we will also transfer your purchased return transportation ticket. This includes the bike/bus and bike only types. Upon request to have your registration transferred, we will automatically add this to your transfer order. After you complete your transfer purchase, we will send you your standard registration transfer code and a separate email containing a transfer code for the bus ticket.
  • Registration add-ons such as packet mailing, parking, bike storage, bike box transport are non-transferrable and non-refundable.
