Ride with Me for Mental Health 2017 Terms and Conditions

All participants in Ride with Me for Mental Health 2017 (Event) are required to have read, understood and accepted these Terms and Conditions. By registering for the Event, you are acknowledging your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

I agree to enter and participate in the Event on the following bases:

  1. I confirm I have read and understood these Terms and Conditions and the Event rules found below. I agree to abide by both of these.
  2. In order to participate in the Event, I must fundraise and reach or exceed the agreed minimum target per rider, which for me is AUD$950. If I do not reach the agreed minimum target, then I must, within 30 days after the Event, pay the difference between the amount which I have fundraised and my agreed minimum target (difference). For the avoidance of doubt, I agree to pay the difference to Love Me Love You within 30 days after the Event regardless of whether or not Love Me Love You sends me an invoice for the difference, and if I exceed the agreed minimum target, I do not take any of the surplus.
  3. I acknowledge that activities such as the Event involve the risk of injury (or even serious injury or death) from various causes, including, but not limited to, overexertion, equipment failure, dehydration, accidents with others (such as other participants in the Event), spectators, road users, the course or conditions (such as weather conditions).
  4. By participating in the Event, I accept all risks flowing from, or otherwise arising out of (directly or indirectly), my participation that could result in injury, loss of life or permanent injury and I agree that I participate in the Event solely at my own risk.
  5. I confirm I am in a fit state to complete the Event safely and that I have sufficient prior experience, or will have obtained sufficient experience, by the day of the Event, including experience in riding in groups, to enable me to participate in the Event satisfactorily.
  6. I understand that insurance does not form part of the registration for the Event, and that the responsibility of obtaining insurance for anything arising as a result of my participation in the Event, including injury, loss or damage which I (or my property or belongings) may sustain or suffer, rests entirely with me.
  7. I acknowledge that, if I am aware of an existing medical condition and / or I am uncertain of my level of fitness, then a medical practitioner should verify that I am sufficiently fit to participate satisfactorily in the Event. If requested by Love Me Love You Australia Limited (ABN 36 161 961 495) (Love Me Love You), I agree to provide Love Me Love You with a signed medical practitioner's certificate prior to the Event confirming my physical and medical fitness to participate in the Event.
  8. I have provided to Love Me Love You details of any medical or physical conditions from which I suffer that might affect my performance or participation or be relevant if medical treatment is needed. I accept the risk of participating in the Event despite these conditions.

I consent to receiving any medical treatment including ambulance transportation that either Bicycle Network Incorporated (Event Organiser) or Love Me Love You (or any of their representatives, volunteers, employees, directors, officers or agents) consider is desirable or advisable in the event of injury, accident and/or illness, either during or after the Event, and I acknowledge that I am solely responsible for all costs related to the provision of such medical treatment to me.
  10. In consideration of and as a condition of acceptance of my entry in the Event, I release Love Me Love You (and its representatives, volunteers, employees, directors, officers or agents) and all parties associated directly or indirectly with the conduct of the Event, such as sponsors, organisers, contractors, managers and medical personnel (collectively, all of the foregoing being referred to as the Released Parties) from all claims, costs, expenses, demands and proceedings arising out of my participation, involvement or registration in the Event. I hereby release and indemnify each of the Released Parties from and against all liability (including liability for their negligence and the negligence of others) for all injury, death, loss or damage arising out of or connected with (directly or indirectly) my participation or registration in the Event. This release and indemnity continues forever and binds my heirs, executors, personal representatives, successors and assigns.

I acknowledge that all riders must adhere to the Event rules as advised or face the possibility of being disqualified from the Event.
  12. Safety precautions undertaken by Love Me Love You or the Event Organiser (such as course supervision, safety briefings and bicycle and helmet safety checks) are a service to me and other participants, but are not a guarantee of safety.
  13.
