Waiver and Release
In consideration of my being permitted to take part in club sponsored events, I (hereinafter including myself, my heirs, executors and administrators), WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance (hereinafter including the corporation, its officers, event leaders, members, and or its agents) arising out of my participation in such events. I understand that accidents occasionally occur during bicycling events and that, as a participant in such events, I might sustain property damage, personal injury and/or death. I FREELY AGREE TO ASSUME SUCH RISKS AND HOLD HARMLESS Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, which through its participation, negligence or carelessness, might otherwise be liable to me for damages.
I further understand that event leaders are not professional guides, or bicycle mechanics and are acting only in the capacity of coordinating rides for the voluntary participation of the participants. Even though safety and other suggestions may be made from time to time during the course of a club ride, the ultimate decision of how and when and whether to proceed is up to me and I am under no obligation to follow instructions from anyone if I feel it is unsafe to do so, including suggestions as to which routes to take. Routes taken during club rides may be dangerous and no representation is made that any club ride is in any way certified as safe. I further assume all responsibility for the operating condition of my bicycle, and my ability to safely operate it.
