This waiver is an important document and you are giving up important legal rights and remedies when you sign it.
You agree that you cannot hold anyone participating in, assisting, or enabling the event in anyway liable for anything relating to or occurring during the event; and you agree not to sue them or bring any other legal action against them. You will reimburse them for any cost, legal fees, expenses or other amounts they may have to pay as a result of you bringing an action or failing to comply with any of your responsibilities under this waiver. This waiver applies even if the person or persons in question were negligent or in any other way did something they should not have done, or failed to do something that they should have done.
You agree that this waiver and all of its provisions will apply to, among others: Overland Base Camp and its employees, officers, directors, contractors, volunteers, and shareholders; the Ride Studio Cafe and its employees, officers, volunteers, and directors; the Ride Headquarters and its employees, officers, volunteers, and directors; all others participating in the event; any and all people, clubs, or companies volunteering, sponsoring, providing equipment, food or beverages, or otherwise assisting in the event.
You agree that: if any part of this waiver is not enforceable, the rest of the waiver will remain enforceable; that the waiver will apply to the current and all future OBC events you may participate in; and that the waiver and all of your legal rights and remedies associated with it will be governed by the laws and courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
You agree to allow OBC and participating riders to take photographs and video footage of you for the purpose of advertising and promoting rides, events, and cycling in general.
Finally, you agree that the opportunity to participate in the ride is adequate consideration for the loss of the rights and remedies you are giving up by signing the waiver.
