Description of Services

B&T may provide you with access to office space, work stations, office equipment, internet, conference rooms, knowledge resources, and other services(collectively, “Services”) from time to time.

B&T offers a number of membership agreements (“Plans”) differing in fees and benefits. A single membership agreement (“Plan”) may be selected by you via B&T Coworking Management Software (“CMS”) at https://members.bikeandtype.com/. The details of that plan are deemed to be included in the TOU. If there is any conflict of information between the B&T website and the CMS the CMS will control.

B&T may publish rules governing the use of any of its spaces or participation in any of the Services. Such rules are incorporated into the TOU by reference and may be disseminated on paper, by email, on B&T website, in the CMS, in member forums, or posted in B&T spaces. If there is any conflict between the TOU and those rules, those rules shall govern.
