I understand that I participate in Community Bike Rides at my own risk and that the programme organisers and volunteers will not be held responsible for any accident suffered or injury sustained by a participant unless the above injury is proven to have been caused as a direct result of negligence on the part of the organisers.
I understand that I must rely on my own ability in dealing with all hazards and that I must ride in a manner which is safe for myself and all others. I am aware that when riding on a public road the function of the Leader is only to indicate direction and that I must decide whether the movement is safe.
By creating an account and registering to participate in Community Bike Rides, I declare that I am over 18 years of age, medically fit and able to complete in such activities within the time limit and parameters specified within the rides I select (and/or lead) and do so totally and absolutely at my own individual risk.
I am also aware that any medical conditions must be highlighted within my online registration form. I fully agree to wear a helmet and ensure my bike is roadworthy for all rides I partake in. I understand that failure to do so means the programme organisers and volunteers will not be held responsible for any accident suffered or injury sustained by the participant. The programme organisers and volunteers will not be held responsible for any property lost, mislaid or stolen before, during or after any Community Bike Ride I partake in.
I understand that for promotional purposes, the Ride Leader may take photographs/recordings before, during and/or after rides and these may be shared/posted on the Community Bike Rides’ website and related social media/web pages and may also be posted on a Ride Leader’s personal social media to further promote their ride in their area. I accept it is my responsibility to inform the Ride Leader before each ride takes place, if I wish to be excluded from any such promotional material.
I understand that the Ride Leader will be able to access my emergency contact information (including medical conditions) in the event of an accident/incident and this information may be shared with a third party as appropriate (i.e. Emergency Services).
I also understand that my personal information will be stored as per GDPR guidelines and it will not be shared with any third party without my consent. In registering and participating in this programme, I agree to be contacted in relation to the Community Bike Rides Programme by the organisers when they are promoting rides, conducting surveys or requiring feedback on the programme.
