Other Details Everyone is more then welcome to stay for a few drinks in the Gyllyngvase Beach Cafe after the prize giving.At votwo we are taking a stand against low quality t-shirts that add unwanted costs to entry fees for events. Instead we are offering a high value goodie bag to all entrants and the chance to purchase a high quality technical t-shirt from the event itself. To pre-order your technical event t-shirt tick the relevant box when booking online and specify the size at the same time. That way you can have a nice new t-shirt and stop adding to the collection of old bike cleaning rags!Events refund policy: Any cancellation received by email to events@votwo.co.uk more than 14 days prior to the event date will receive a 50% refund.
