Team Evesham is an association of cyclists which promotes cycling as a means to good mental and physical health and participates in events to raise funds for non-profit, charitable organizations. I wish to participate in rides and other events sponsored by Team Evesham. However, as a cyclist, I acknowledge that cycling is an inherently dangerous sport and I recognize the dangers involved in cycling including, but not limited to, dangers associated with man-made and natural hazards; the dangers of collision with pedestrians, vehicles, other riders and fixed or moving objects; the dangers arising from surface hazards including pot holes, equipment failure, inadequate safety equipment, my own negligence and weather conditions; and the possibility of serious physical and/or mental trauma or injury, or death associated with cycling activities. I fully agree to assume all such risks in connection with any cycling activities associated with Team Evesham.
In consideration for my being permitted to participate in Team Evesham rides and activities, I hereby covenant and agree on my own behalf, and on behalf of my heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns, not to sue and to waive release and forever discharge Team Evesham, its members, team leaders, officers, agents, servants and assigns from any and all claims, causes of action, demands, debts or liabilities whatsoever, in law or in equity, arising out of my participation in any cycling or other events as sponsored by Team Evesham, including any claims for injury or death, property damage or any other losses from the beginning of the world to the date of this release.
I agree, for myself and my successors, that the above representations are contractually binding, are not mere recitals and that should I or my successors assert claims contrary to what I have agreed to in this contract, the claiming party shall be liable for the expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) incurred by the releasees in defending any such claims. This contract may not be modified orally, and any modification or amendment to this agreement must be set forth in writing.
This written agreement supersedes any and all prior oral or representations relating to the subject of this agreement.
I HAVE READ THE ATTACHED RELEASE and WAIVER OF LIABILITY.
Helmets are required for rides, and properly fitting water bottles. For your safety and the safety of other riders around you, the use of stereo/earbuds of any type is prohibited on Team Evesham rides.
