Questions / Answers
+ General Question: Why use Summit Cycle Solutions?
Answer: All services are managed through contractual agreements. Without giving away trade secrets, you can rest assured that our team manages all reservations diligently via a contract. We also always have a back up plan...we are in the business of events after all. Additionally, S.C.S. coordinates with event organizers to provide operational support (Buses, Luggage Transfers, Communication, Etc.). Lastly, a large portion of revenues is returned to the event...supporting communities all over the great state of Colorado!
+ GENERAL Question: When will S.C.S. start accepting reservations?
Answer: S.C.S. "book now" portals are currently slated to open in alignment with route announcements.
+ General Question: How does S.C.S. determine pricing?
Answer: S.C.S. only adds mark up to rooms negotiated down to direct rates. If a hotel room cannot be negotiated down then a small admin fee is added to the price of the lodging unit. In 2018 typically this fee was around $15 dollars. S.C.S. is contractually obligated to a maximum/minimum markup guarantee...passing along savings to the customer! Tax/surcharge rates are not typically controlled by S.C.S. These percentages are mandated by various town & resort entities. Please note that resort municipalities can often charge over inflated rates...some as high as 18%. We think it's crazy too!
+ General Question: Can I purchase over the phone?
Answer: Yes! You may schedule a time to speak with an S.C.S. Representative on the home page. S.C.S.'s urgent phone line is used during events only. With thousands of reservations, S.C.S. does work to streamline calls. Warning Inventory is live on the website. It is S.C.S.'s recommendation that you book online as we sold out in 2 hours during the 2018 R.T.R. booking season.
+ General Question: How long do I have to book once I have gained access to the site?
Answer: 15 minutes! With thousands of reservations coming in... S.C.S. does limit the amount of time a customer can "sit" on the inventory prior to checking out. Thank you for understanding!
Please note that the timer does not start until you click on the "book now" button.
+ Lodging Question: Can S.C.S. accommodate group lodging requests?
Answer: Yes. Please note that split payments are only avialabile for bookings over the phone.
+ Lodging Question: Do room rates include breakfast?
Answer: S.C.S. will note properties including breakfast under the details tab located within the book now portal. S.C.S. cannot honor the quality, timing, or the guarantee of breakfast each morning. Such items are under the direct control of the property.
+ LODGING & BUS Question: Can I cancel my reservation at any time?
Answer: No. In 2018, S.C.S. took in 2,200 reservations in 2 hours for one event. Due to demand, S.C.S. does hold very strict cancellation policies. All customers must review terms prior to check out. S.C.S. highly recommends attaining private travel insurance, available through www.balanceforcyclists.com
+ LODGING Question: Are reservations transferable?
Answer: Yes & No. If a participant needs to cancel a reservation, S.C.S. will then offer his/her reservation for resale. If a resale occurs, S.C.S. will refund the original participant less the 20% cancellation fee. In 2018, most all cancellations were partially refunded thanks to a high demand! This process must be managed via S.C.S. in order to ensure contractual compliance.
+ Bus Question: Is there bus transportation to S.C.S. lodging properties?
Answer: NO! Please arange transporation to your hotel each day at Triple Bypass 2019.
+ Bus Question: Can I take my bike on the bus?
Answer: NO. Bikes are placed on a secured box truck, covered with moving blankets, and secured by cam straps.
+ Bus Question: Do buses run on a time schedule?
Answer: YES. Please reference your purchased time. DO NOT BE LATE. Buses leave on time.
