Acknowledgement waiver and release
I agree to comply with all road rules and regulations, and all lawful instructions and directions of Bikestyle Tours Pty Ltd, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, and volunteers (collectively the Organiser) during the Bikestyle organised tours (the Event). If I fail to comply with the road rules and regulations, and instructions and/or directions of the Organiser, I will not be permitted to ride or continue to ride.
I acknowledge that cycling can be an inherently dangerous activity. I recognise 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 Organiser of any liability resulting from injury, death, loss or damage during the Event.
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, I agree that the Organiser may provide evacuation, first aid and/or medical treatment at my expense and my acceptance of these terms and conditions 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 during the Event. I acknowledge that if the Organiser performs any repairs or work on my bicycle or other equipment the Organiser does not warrant that work nor offer any guarantee of any kind 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 Organiser 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 Event, 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 releasees and 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
(c) acknowledge that if I were to assert a claim such claim would be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the laws of Queensland, Australia.
I acknowledge and consent to photographs, video, audio recordings, multimedia or film likeness being taken of me by or on behalf of Organiser during the tour. I acknowledge that the photographs, video, audio recordings, multimedia or film likeness are owned by the Bikestyle Tours and that the organiser may use the photographs, video, audio recordings, multimedia or film likeness for promotional or other purposes without my further consent being obtained. Further, I consent to the organisers using my name, image, likeness and also my performance in the tour, at any time, to promote the tour by any form of media.
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.
