I hereby assume all of the risks of taking part in this activity, including by way of example and not limitation, any risks that 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 that I am physically fit, have sufficiently prepared or trained for participation in this activity, and have not been advised to not participate by a qualified medical professional. I certify that there are no health-related reasons or problems which preclude my participation in this activity. If, during the event, I decide to change their route and distance, then all the consequences of the actions will be mine. I confirm that the bicycle that I am riding for the event and all of the equipment is of a suitable standard and state of road worthiness (where I have provided my own bicycle for the event).
I acknowledge that this Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form will be used by the event holders, sponsors, and organisers of the activity in which I may participate, and that it will govern my actions and at said activity.
In consideration of my application and permitting me to participate in this activity, I hereby take action for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns as follows:
I waive, release, and discharge from any and all liability, including but not limited to, liability arising from the negligence or fault of the entities or persons released, for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property then, or actions of any kind which may hereafter occur to me including my travelling to and from this activity, THE FOLLOWING ENTITIES OR PERSONS: Red Fox Cycling Limited and/or their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives, and agents, and the activity holders, sponsors, and volunteers;
INDEMNIFY, HOLD HARMLESS, AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE the entities or persons mentioned in this paragraph from any and all liabilities or claims made as a result of participation in this activity, whether caused by the negligence of release or otherwise.
I acknowledge that Red Fox Cycling Limited, and their directors, officers, volunteers, representatives, and agents are NOT responsible for the errors, omissions, acts, or failures to act of any party or entity conducting a specific activity on their behalf. I acknowledge that this activity 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. The risks include, but are not limited to, those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, condition of participants, equipment, vehicular traffic, lack of hydration, and actions of other people including, but not limited to, participants, volunteers, monitors, and/or producers of the activity. These risks are not only inherent to participants but are also present for volunteers.
I hereby consent to receive medical treatment which may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident, and/or illness during this activity. I agree to carry medical supplies required for treating any medical conditions specific to me.
I acknowledge that images may be captured during the event using film photography, digital photography, video or other media and may be used by Red Fox Cycling or its partner festivals to promote future events on the Red Fox Cycling website, social media websites, promotional leaflets, newsletters and other publicity materials.

The Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
I accept that the event is not a race in any format. Results will not be published and anyone considered to be competing against others will be stopped from riding. I am fully responsible for my actions while attending the event. Red Fox Cycling Limited does not accept responsibility for the actions of participants nor the consequences of such actions.
I am responsible for providing my own insurance protection for my participation in the event. Any accident or injury caused by the rider's actions will be the fully responsibility of the said rider.
I agree to wear, as a minimum, a suitable designed cycling helmet rated to a minimum of CE EN 1078, during the whole riding section of the event. I also agree to NOT cycle with headphones and to have 2 water bottles on my bike to aid hydration while cycling.
If you are accompanied by a child under the age of 18 I take full responsibility for the child including ensuring that they wear a helmet as defined above. The child must be fully supervised at all times by the parent.
It is my responsibility to make a decision whether to ride a section or not. The route in the directions does not necessarily indicate that a road is rideable and the participant is deemed to make their own decision about whether to proceed on bike, foot or not at all. Any route provided is for guidance only and Red Fox Cycling Limited does not insist that you use the route shown. Therefore, if I choose to ride a section, it is entirely my own choice. If I choose a different route to avoid obstacles or sections I do so entirely at my own risk.
I hereby certify that, to the best of my knowledge, I am not infected with the Covid-19 virus and have not, in the 7 days prior to the start date of my ride, been in contact with any individual who has tested positive for the Covid-19 virus.
Where, in the time between returning this certification and commencing my ride, I become aware that I have either been infected or have had contact with an individual who has become infected with the Covid-19 virus, I will in good faith inform the ride organiser ahead of the ride start date.
I certify that, at the time of returning this certification, I am not suffering from a persistent dry cough, raised temperature, loss of or change to my sense of smell or taste or any other symptom which might suggest I am infected with the Covid-19 virus.
BY CHECKING "YES" TO THE RELEASE OF LIABILITY I CERTIFY THAT I HAVE READ THIS DOCUMENT AND I FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENT. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND A CONTRACT AND I SIGN IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL.
