LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

DEFINITIONS: In this agreement, the term "cycling vacation" shall include, but not be limited to, all activities, services and use of facilities either provided by or arranged by the Operator, or in any way related to the cycling vacation, including but not limited to: orientation and instructions sessions, transportation to and from where the cycling vacation begins or ends, accommodation and recreational activities in addition to cycling on or off road, swimming, running, touring, unloading and travel in or movement around airplanes, busses, motor vehicles and bicycles.

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS I am aware that a cycling vacation involves risks, dangers and hazards in addition to those normally associated with riding a bicycle on or off a road, including but not limited to: road surface hazards, equipment failure, the failure to wear safety equipment, the use of inadequate safety equipment, weather conditions, impact or collision with motor vehicles, other cyclists and other objects; the failure to operate a bicycle safely or within one’s own ability; negligence on my part or on the part of other parties including other cyclists; and NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF THE OPERATOR OR ITS GUIDES AND EMPLOYEES, INCLUDING THE FAILURE OF THE OPERATORS OR THEIR GUIDES AND EMPLOYEES TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH A CYCLING VACATION. Cyclists may become lost or separated from their guide or group and agree that they have the ability to ride independently in such circumstances. Communication in the countryside may be difficult and in the event of accident, rescue and medical treatment may not be readily available.

  I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH A CYCLING VACATION AND I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS AND THE POSSIBILITY OF PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR ANY LOSS RESULTING THEREFROM.

  RELEASE OF LIABILITY, WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT

In consideration of THE OPERATOR allowing me to participate in the cycling vacation and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, I HEREBY AGREE AS FOLLOWS:

  1. TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS that I have, or may have in future, against THE OPERATOR, and ITS directors, officers, employees, guides, agents, independent contractors, representatives, personal representatives, successors and assigns [all of whom are herein collectively referred to as the "RELEASEES"] and to RELEASE THE RELEASEES from any and all liability for any loss, damage, expense or injury [including death] that I may suffer, or that my next of kin may suffer, as a result of my participation in the cycling vacation, DUE TO ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR BREACH OF ANY STATUTE OR OTHER DUTY OF CARE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES, AND INCLUDING ANY FAILURE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CYCLING VACATION REFERRED TO ABOVE AND WHICH I HAVE DECIDED TO PARTICIPATE IN.
  2. TO HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY THE RELEASEES from any and all property damage or personal injury caused to any third party resulting from my conduct or participation in the cycling vacation.
  3. To purchase out of country medical insurance coverage to cover me for the full period of time that I am out of my home state or province participating in the cycling vacation.
  4. That this agreement shall be effective and binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators and assigns and representatives, in the event of my death or incapacity. 
  5. That this agreement and any rights, duties and obligations as between the parties to this agreement shall be governed by and interpreted solely in accordance with the laws of the Country of Italy.
  6. Any litigation involving the parties to this agreement shall be brought solely in the Country of Italy, whose courts shall have the sole and exclusive jurisdiction.

By signing this document the undersigned acknowledges and agrees that he/she is not relying on any oral or written representations or statements made by the Releasees with respect to the safety of the cycling vacation, other than as set forth in this agreement.

  I confirm that it is my sole decision to participate in the activities associated with the cycling vacation and that I have consulted with my physician and have been given clearance to participate in the activities.
