PARTICIPANT’S WAIVER OF LIABILITY
This is an important legal document that affects your rights. Please read it carefully before deciding whether to sign.
I hereby acknowledge that there is an element of risk involved in situations involving outdoor physical activity, and physical activity in general. I further acknowledge that there are various risks specific to bicycle rides, including, but not limited to, physical strains or injuries caused by physical movement and/or exertion, physical injuries caused by collisions with other bicycles and/or bicycle riders, motor vehicles, pedestrians, animals, and/or road hazards including but not limited to bumps, potholes, debris, and slick conditions; physical injuries caused by falling from a stopped or moving bicycle; and the risk that other participants or unrelated third parties may act negligently, recklessly, or intentionally and cause the participant injury while riding. Therefore, I, the undersigned participant, assume all risk and responsibility for the activities while engaged in bicycle rides organized by WWCycling Riding Club (The Club), including responsibility for all accidental or negligent acts of The Club and its employees, but I do not assume risk or waive liability for the reckless or intentional acts or omissions of The Club or for any other acts, omissions, or events which Wisconsin Statutes and/or controlling common law do not allow waiver of liability. Therefore, I agree to waive all claims of liability and agree to hold harmless the The Club and its officers, board members, employees, agents, assigns, and volunteers, for any and all of the items listed above for which I have assumed risk and/or waived liability. I have considered that if this waiver of liability was not as broad as it is, the cost for The Club to provide organized bicycle rides would be considerably higher, and as I do not wish to pay a considerably higher cost, I waive the right to bargain for different waiver of liability terms. I understand that, in lieu of signing this document and waiving claims for liability against The Club, I may contact the The Club and pay a fee of $1,500.00 to cover the higher insurance and program costs resulting from not assuming risk and waiving liability.
By signing this form, I irrevocably state that I do not wish to pay an extra fee and assume risk and waive liability as stated above.
