Terms and Conditions


I am aware that cycling, riding, running and other activities associated with road, trail or mountain biking are athletic events which pose potentially serious risks of injuries or death to their participants. I am aware of the intrinsic dangers of cycling activities. I understand that I may be injured or die as a result of my negligence, the negligence of others, or through no fault of myself or anyone else, because of the nature of the activity in which I am going to be engaged.

With this waiver I accept notice of the intrinsic dangers of cycling that are an integral part of the activities I will be participating in, including, but not limited to:

  • That equipment I am using, including any bicycle and its component parts, may malfunction, break or fail during an activity in ways that may result in injury, harm or death to the persons on or around them;
  • Certain hazards such as surface or subsurface conditions;
  • Collisions with animals, vehicles, other riders or objects;
  • Falling or being ejected from a bicycle;
  • Hypothermia, sunstroke, sunburn or other conditions resulting from exposure to the elements;
  • Limitations in my physical condition;
  • and the potential of a participant acting in a negligent manner that may contribute to injury to the participant or others, such as failing to maintain control over their bicycle or not acting within the participant's ability.

  • This waiver shall remain valid unless expressly revoked by the participant or parent or guardian of a minor, in writing, with receipt acknowledged by SoCal Bike.

    With the knowledge of the foregoing, and as an inducement for the SoCal Bike to allow me to ride their bicycle, I hereby agree to waive or release any and all rights that I or my heirs may have to make a claim against SoCal Bike or any members of its Board of Directors, owners, employees and participants, or any landowners over whose land I ride, arising from any damages, injury, or death which I might sustain as a result of my riding or associated activities. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless all of the foregoing from any claims which I might make or which might be made on my behalf by others or which might be made against me by others, arising from riding. Furthermore, I agree to indemnify SoCal Bike, its Board of Directors, members or employees, or any landowners, their families, employees or tenants, for any injury, death, loss or damage to any personal property which might occur during a cycling activity or social functions sponsored by SoCal Bike or held in its behalf or for its benefit, when such injury, death, loss or damage occurs on the property of a landowner or SoCal Bike.
