### BMB self guided tours and hire require a minimum number of 4 riders on the day to go ahead. This does not mean you need to have 4 people in your group, but means 4 riders in total across any of our rides on the day. eg, 2 riders book the Oaks Trail and 2 riders book Hanging Rock Trail, means the day will go ahead! The booking system will send a pending order email confirmation upon your online booking. When total bookings hit 4 on any given day, bookings/rides will be automatically confirmed. Regardless of whether ride goes ahead or not, you will receive a call from the owner (Sam) the day before your ride to confirm the status and info about the ride and logistics. Rides that do not go ahead will be instantly refunded or you can choose another date and the booking will be moved...whatever suits you best! The above is not totally inflexible and Sam will help, with pleasure, where ever possible.
