Agreement to release and waive liability, assumption of risk and indemnity
In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way in any activity (‘Activity’) organized by the ALBANY SAINTS AND SINNERS MULTISPORT CLUB (‘Club’), GRAHAMSTOWN, I, for myself, my personal representatives, heirs and next of kin: 1. Acknowledge, agree and represent that I understand the nature of cycling activities and that I am qualified, in good health and in proper physical condition to participate in such Activity. I further acknowledge that the Activity will be conducted over public roads and facilities open to the public during the Activity, and upon which the hazards of traveling are to be expected. I further agree and warrant that at any time I believe conditions to be unsafe, I will immediately discontinue further participation in the Activity. 2. Fully understand that: 2.1. Bicycling activities involve risks and dangers of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death (‘Risks’); 2.2. these Risks and dangers may be caused by my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in the Activity, the condition in which the Activity takes place, or the negligence of the ‘releasees’ named below; 2.3. there may be other risks and social and economic losses either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for losses, costs and damages I incur as a result of my participation in the Activity. 3. Hereby release, discharge and covenant not to sue the Club, their respective administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers and employees, other participants, any sponsors, advertisers and, if applicable, owners and lessees of premises on which the Activity takes place (each considered one of the ‘releasees’ herein) from all liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on my account caused, or alleged to be caused in whole or in part, by the negligence of the ‘releasees’ or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if, despite this Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement I, or any one on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the ‘releasees’, I will indemnify, save and hold harmless each of the ‘releasees’ from any litigation expenses, attorneys’ fees, loss, liability, damage, or cost which any may incur as the result of such claim. I have read this agreement, fully understand its terms, understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it, and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature, and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of any liability to the greatest extent allowed by law, and agree that if any portion of this agreement is held to be invalid, the balance, notwithstanding, shall continue in full force and effect. This agreement will remain valid in perpetuity and until withdrawn in writing by myself.
