ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, WAIVER & RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
I agree to comply with all road rules and regulations, and all lawful instructions and directions of HC Bike Tours, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, and volunteers (collectively the Organizer) during the tours organized by HC Bike Tours (the Tour). If I fail to comply with the road rules and regulations, and instructions and/or directions of the Organizer, I will not be permitted to ride or continue to ride.
I acknowledge that cycling can be an inherently dangerous activity. I recognize that there are risks and hazards specifically associated with this activity, including the possibility or injury and death and loss and damage both to myself and my possessions. I therefore release the Organizer of any liability resulting from injury, death, loss or damage during the Tour.
I understand and acknowledge the dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol or any mind-altering substance before or during any cycling activity. I accept full responsibility for injury, loss or damage arising from consumption of alcohol or any mind-altering substance.
If I suffer any injury or illness while on the Tour, I agree that the Organizer may provide evacuation, first aid and/or medical treatment at my expense and my acceptance hereof constitutes my consent to such evacuation, first aid and/or medical treatment.
I acknowledge that I have sole responsibility for my personal possessions and sporting equipment, or any items rented from Organizer during the Tour. I acknowledge that if the Organizer performs any repairs or work on my bicycle or other equipment the Organizer does not offer any guarantee in respect of that work.
For myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next-of-kin, successors and assigns, I hereby:
(a) waive and release all claims I may have against the Organizer or any one or more of their executors, administrators, heirs, next-of-kin, successors and assigns including any or all claims for injury, loss or damages caused by negligence of any of the above arising out of my participation in the Tour, together with any costs including legal fees that may be incurred as a result of such claim whether valid or not; and
(b) indemnify and hold harmless the Organizers and release each of them against any such claim that I or any one or more of my executors, administrators, heirs, next-of-kin, successors and assigns may have or assert and against any costs including legal fees with respect thereof; and
(c) acknowledge that if I were to assert a claim, such claim would be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the laws of country where Organizer board is located.
I acknowledge that I have read this assumption of risk. I fully understand its terms and that I have given up substantial rights by agreeing to it. I accept this document freely and voluntarily without any inducement made to me and intend my signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.
I have read and agree to the HC Bike Tours Waiver & Release from Liability.
