Flo Bikes Subscription Question

For those that subscribe to FloBikes..... are you billed $12.50 monthly or the whole $150?

The fine print says you may cancel any time, but makes no mention of a refund.... pro-rated or otherwise.

I'd appreciate clarification from actual subscribers.... the FAQ's are less than helpful

TIA

I did it once a few years back. Never again.

I think it was the whole year in one whack and if you cancel you just ride out the pre-paid term. They may have changed. I don't remember it being a surprise, whatever it was. Just a disappointment after I had it.

You can get GCN and a premium VPN for substantially less, and then get good programming instead of the drivel that Flo puts out.

also what I experienced... FloBikes was a huge waste of money.
I couldn;t go the VPN route (business connection conflict), but did get a GCN + subscription, and also Peacock - which covers most of the Pro cycling calendar, except for the Recent Week of 'Pre' and Tour of Flanders week races. GCN has the Giro and most Pro, Continental and cyclocross races, additionally Peacock gives the TDF and Vuelta, as well as access to most all of the Winter Alpine and XC ski races and Biathlon. Mountain biking is also covered by both Peacock and GCN. Both together cost $110 for.
Ride On

I think the content that Flo provides for free, like on you-tube, is totally worth it!!!

BARELY!

I'm fine with Ant McCrossin as a commentator but Flo keeps sneaking in those stupid peloton fan boy clips with the guy who puts his face all the way into the camera. I'd pay to not see those.
