In consideration of my registration to bicycle in a Streetsville Slow Roll or my participation in any event or daily ride, I hereby agree and acknowledge the following, which includes a release of liability, which will apply to all of my participation in all Streetsville Slow Roll rides/events, and daily rides:
I am aware that with any bicycle-related activity there are certain inherent dangers, including but not limited to the hazards of roads, off-road terrain, accidents, actions of participants and other persons.
By my participation in any Event, I certify that I am aware of these inherent dangers of bicycle riding and the safety rules of the road applicable to bicycles.

I hereby consent to emergency medical treatment if I am injured while participating in an Event.
I understand that it is not the function of the ride leaders (if an Event has ride leaders) to serve as guardians of my safety. I recognize that the route(s) chosen may be challenging, not necessarily the safest or easiest route(s) and that weather, road or traffic conditions may make a ride more difficult. Organizers reserves the right to remove any rider who is deemed to be endangering himself/herself or others or is riding illegally as defined by the Ontario traffic law. Notwithstanding this clause, Streetsville Slow Roll organizers are not responsible for cyclists not removed from the Event for any of these reasons and this clause shall in no way supersede, exempt participants from, or otherwise nullify any other clause in this Waiver & Release.
I freely and voluntarily accept all risks of injury, death, or property damage. I understand and agree that none of the parties described below may be held liable in any way for any occurrence or accident in connection with an Event. I hereby RELEASE from any and all liability and agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS Streetville BIA, their officers, agents, successors and assigns, the sponsors, the ride leader(s) (if any), or other volunteers, against all claims, including, but not limited to, claims of negligence, unintentional acts, and acts of omission, and any loss or expense, which may arise from my participation in any Event. I understand I am responsible for my own conduct and decisions while participating in a Streetsville Slow Roll Event and further agree that this Waiver & Release shall apply to any claim arising out of my participation in non-bicycling activities while a participant in an Event. This Waiver & Release is intended to be binding upon me, my family, my heirs, my estate, my legal representatives and assigns. I understand that the terms of this document are contractual and not a mere recital, and I have signed this document as my own free act. Streetsville Slow Roll will not be responsible for any delay, interruption or other failure to perform, and may cancel any Event in the case of a circumstance beyond its reasonable control.
I AGREE I HAVE FULLY INFORMED MYSELF OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS WAIVER & RELEASE BY READING IT AND AGREE TO ITS TERMS.
