Mountain Biking Is A Dangerous And Hazardous Activity Which Can Result In Serious Injury or Death.

Mountain biking is different than road biking, and may be more dangerous than road biking in that it is done on partially improved and unimproved trails and roads, as well as on naturally rugged terrain. Mountain biking involves risks, including, but not limited to, steep slopes, rocks of various sizes, trees, roots, tree stumps, cliffs, rock drops, holes and potholes, depressions, streams and creeks, dirt features and other constructed features such as bridges, ramps, ladders, bumps, berms, jumps and drops, wallrides, elevated stunts, uneven and/or slippery trail conditions, varying slopes, variations in terrain, forest growth, loose gravel and dirt, wet surfaces, downed timber, debris, collisions, other riders, hikers and pedestrians. Trail conditions and features may change quickly due to weather, use and other factors. Undersigned understands and agree that there are risks involved in decision making and conduct of All Season Adaptive Sports employees involved with the activity, including, but not limited to, the risks involved with rescue operations and/or medical care conducted or provided by ASAS personnel and the risk that an instructor/coach/guide may misjudge Participant’s abilities, conditioning, or misjudge weather, terrain, trail conditions, route selection, location, or some aspect of participant’s mental, emotional, or physical condition that may make a certain portion of the activity appropriate or inappropriate for the participant. Undersigned understand and agree that participant must have the physical dexterity and knowledge to safely access the terrain they choose. Adult agrees that that he/she will instruct and direct minor to abide by the rules and regulations of ASAS and to follow instruction and direction from ASAS staff. Adult for him/herself and/or, if applicable, on behalf of minor hereby freely and expressly agrees to assume and accept any and all risks or injury or death to the participant in any way connected with the activity. Recognizing the risks, adult voluntarily chooses to take part in the activity, and, if applicable, voluntarily chooses to allow minor to participate in the activity and represents that participant has the skills and dexterity to safely participate in the activity and will at all times ride within hi/her abilities or participate in other parts of the activity in a prudent and responsible manner.

Adult understands and agrees that he/she may not be available or present when the minor’s equipment is fitted and adjusted and hereby waives the opportunity to verify the mountain bike and helmet size and fit and authorizes employees of ASAS to fit and adjust the mountain bike and helmet. Prior to mountain biking participant will inspect his/her bicycle and assure him/herself that it is in good operating order and can be safely used. Participant understands and agrees that ASAS equipment is equipped for daytime use only and that any use of the equipment after dark is not recommended and it is at participant’s own risk. Undersigned understand and agree that participant will be the only person to use the equipment during this period. Undersigned accept the equipment for use “as is” and with no warranties, express or implied, and accept full responsibility for the care of the equipment while in participant’s possession. If the equipment is not functioning properly, Undersigned agree participant will stop using rental equipment immediately, will notify ASAS staff immediately and return the improperly functioning equipment to the trailer.

Undersigned give ASAS permission to take and use photographs, video recordings, or movies of participant taken during an activity and use and sublicense such material for any purpose in promoting ASAS or related activities of ASAS in print, brochures, advertisements, films or videos and on broadcast presentations of any sort.
