Marin Velo Club Waiver and Release
(PLEASE FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY MARIN VELO CLUB RIDES).
In consideration of my participation in a Marin Velo Club ride or event, I hereby agree and acknowledge the following, which includes a release of liability, which will apply to all of my participation in all Marin Velo Club rides and events:
I am aware that with any bicycle related activity there are certain inherent dangers, including but not limited to the hazards of roads, off road terrain, accidents, actions of participants and other persons. By my participation in any ride or event, I certify that I am aware of these inherent dangers of bicycle riding and the safety rules of the road applicable to bicycles.
I understand that CPSC certified bicycle helmets are required to participate in all rides and events and I agree to wear a helmet while participating in any such ride and event and to follow the rules of the road and all applicable laws and safe bicycling practices.
I hereby consent to emergency medical treatment if I am injured while participating in a ride or event.
I understand that it is not the function of the ride leaders (if a ride or event has ride leaders) to serve as guardians of my safety. I recognize that the route(s) chosen may be challenging, not necessarily the safest or easiest route(s) and that weather, road or traffic conditions may make a ride more difficult. Marin Velo Club reserves the right to remove any rider who is deemed to be endangering himself/herself or others or is riding illegally as defined by California State traffic law. Notwithstanding this clause, Marin Velo Club is not responsible for cyclists not removed from the ride or event for any of these reasons and this clause shall in no way supersede, exempt participants from, or otherwise nullify any other clause in this Waiver & Release.
I give permission to Marin Velo Club to use my image without payment in any future Marin Velo Club materials should it appear in photos taken during a ride or event.
I freely and voluntarily accept all risks of injury, death, or property damage. I understand and agree that none of the parties described below may be held liable in any way for any occurrence or accident in connection with a ride or event. I hereby RELEASE from any and all liability and agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS Marin Velo Club, their officers, agents, successors and assigns, the sponsors, the ride leader(s) (if any), or other volunteers, against all claims, including, but not limited to, claims of negligence, unintentional acts, and acts of omission, and any loss or expense, which may arise from my participation in any ride or event. I understand I am responsible for my own conduct and decisions while participating in a Marin Velo Club ride or event and further agree that this Waiver & Release shall apply to any claim arising out of my participation in non-bicycling activities while a participant in a ride or event.
This Waiver & Release is intended to be binding upon me, my family, my heirs, my estate, my legal representatives and assigns. Any legal action that may arise from my participation in this ride or event will be brought in Marin County Superior Court in the State of California. I understand that the terms of this document are contractual and not a mere recital, and I have signed this document as my own free act.
The Marin Velo Club will not be responsible for any delay, interruption or other failure to perform, and may cancel any ride or event in the case of a circumstance beyond its reasonable control. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, an Act of God (for example, flood, earthquake, volcanic eruption, etc), war, riot or other civil disturbance, fire, epidemic, explosion, terrorist activity, sabotage, compliance with government requests, orders, or regulations, inability to deploy necessary equipment or volunteers, roadway or trail closures or construction, dangerous or impassable roadway or trail conditions, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of the Marin Velo Club.
I AGREE I HAVE FULLY INFORMED MYSELF OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS WAIVER & RELEASE BY READING IT AND AGREE TO ITS TERMS.

Parent or legal guardian must accompany and be responsible for all persons under the age of 18.
I authorize emergency medical treatment for the minor registering and I accept full responsibility for all medical expenses incurred as a result of the minor’s participation in any ride or event.
