52nd Annual Great Western Bicycle Rally

WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY

I hereby acknowledge that participation in the Great Western Bicycle Rally ("Rally") may involve a test of a person's physical and mental limits and carries with it the potential for death, serious injury and property loss. All participants of the Giro di Paso and Velo de Femme are also participants of the "Rally".  These risks include, but are not limited to, those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, physical condition of Rally participants, lack of hydration, equipment, vehicular traffic, and actions of other people including, but not limited to, participants, volunteers, spectators, Rally officials, and/or producers of the Rally.  These risks are not only inherent to participation in the Rally, but are also present for volunteers. I hereby assume all of the risks of participating and/or volunteering in the Rally and understand that liability may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities being released, from dangerous or defective equipment or property owned, maintained or controlled by them or because of their possible liability without fault.

I certify I am physically fit, have sufficiently trained for participation in the Rally and have not been advised otherwise by a qualified medical person. 

I acknowledge that this Waiver and Release of Liability form will be used by the Rally and its organizers, and that it will govern my actions and responsibilities while attending and participating in the Rally.

In consideration of the acceptance of my application and permission to participate in the Rally, myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns do hereby:  

(A) Waive, release and discharge from any and all liability for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft or actions of any kind which may hereafter accrue to me, or my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns, as a result of my participation in, traveling to or traveling from the Rally, the following entities or persons:  Great Western Bicycle Rally, Inc., Cycling Camp San Diego, the 16th District Agricultural Association, the City of Paso Robles, the State of California, Department of Transportation, and Federal, State & Local municipalities, and other governmental entities, churches, clubs, and campgrounds that be included in this event, their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives, and agents, and Rally volunteers;

This Waiver and Release of Liability shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law and if any portion of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable by a court of law all other sections shall remain in full force and effect.

If I am a parent or legal guardian of a minor who is included on my  registration I understand that I am also signing on their behalf and agree that they will also be bound by the terms of this agreement, waiver and release. As a parent or legal guardian I hereby represent that I am, in fact, acting in such capacity and agree to save and hold harmless and indemnify each and all of the parties referred to above from all liability, loss, cost, claim or damage whatsoever which may be imposed upon said parties because of any defect in or lack of such capacity to so act and release said parties on behalf of the minor and the parents or legal guardian.
