Assumption of Risk
The undersigned acknowledges and understands that biking and other similar activities carried on in the Park (the "Activities") are hazardous and dangerous activities that are both physically and technically challenging and that various degrees of skill and experience are necessary for the different surfaces and venues within the Park. The undersigned understands that serious bodily injury and damage to property is a common and expected part of these Activities. The undersigned is aware of the risks, hazards, and dangers of personal injury, death and disability in entering the Park, as well as those risks, hazards and dangers of personal injury, death and disability inherent in participation in any Activity. The undersigned is aware that the usual risks, hazards and dangers of personal injury, death and disability increase when using ramps, curbs, steps, half pipes, bumps, berms, drops, skinnies, bridges, inclines or declines, bowls or any other such structure or device. The undersigned also understands that these risks, hazards and dangers will be further increased because other persons will be using the Park at the same time and may have a greater or lesser degree of experience or skill than the Participant does, or no experience or skill at all. In addition to the usual dangers inherent in the Activities, there will be the added or increased danger and risk of uncontrollable equipment related to these Activities, falling, jumping, landing, performing tricks, and/or colliding with other participants or any other person constituting a Releasee. This agreement, waiver and release includes but is not limited to the waiver and release of any claims that I may have or may in the future have as a result of any illness or illnesses that I may contract, including COVID-19, or resultant death, from attending at the facility, participating in activities at the facility or supervising or viewing activities at the facility. For greater certainty, I assume any and all risk that I may contract an illness, including COVID-19, while at the facility or a Joyride 150 Indoor Bike Park event, notwithstanding reasonable steps and precautions taken by the park to prevent or mitigate the risk of such illness or illnesses. I expressly waive any right that I may have to make a claim for damages or other relief in the event that I contract such illness or illnesses and expressly release the Centre from such claims. Your personal information can be used for contact tracing, if Public Health deems it necessary. The undersigned is also aware that there is an inherent risk in simply being at the Park and/or observing, photographing or videotaping the Activities. The undersigned hereby freely accepts and fully assumes any and all of the foregoing risks of loss, damage and injury, known and unknown, even if arising from negligence on the part of the Releasees, including the failure on the part of the Releasees to safeguard or protect the Participant from the risks, dangers and hazards involved in the Activities and/or the presence of the Participant in the Park.
Permission to Record and Use
I grant permission to Joyride 150 to post my and/or my child’s story, photo, or other item, hereinafter referred to as “Materials” on Joyride 150’s website and social media platforms. I hereby release you, your representative, employees, managers, members, officers, parent companies, subsidiaries, and directors, from all claims and demands arising out of or in connection with any use of said “Materials”, including, without limitation, all claims for invasion of privacy, infringement of my right of publicity, defamation and any other personal and/or property rights. I acknowledge and agree that no sums whatsoever will be due to me as a result of the use and/or exploitation of the “Materials” or any rights therein.

The undersigned acknowledges that the presence of the Participant and any participation in Activities at the Park are strictly voluntary in spite of the unavoidable risks and dangers of such presence and/or participation, and no one is forcing the Participant to be present or to participate in any Activities at the Park. The Park and the Releasees are not providing any essential services and there are other locations at which the Participant can participate in similar activities. The undersigned hereby represents that no special relationship exists between the Participant and any Releasee, and that the undersigned is not under any physical, economic or other compulsion to sign this Waiver. The undersigned agrees that the Participant shall not take any unreasonable risks while at the Park including, but not limited to, causing himself or herself, other participants in the Activities, or spectators at the Park or other persons present at the Park any unreasonable risk or harm.

The undersigned hereby gives consent and permission to the Releasees to obtain on behalf of the Participant any emergency medical attention and treatment in case of sickness, accident or injury and to secure such medical attention and treatment at my sole expense.
This Waiver shall continue in full force and effect and shall apply to all future visits by the Participant to the Park, and to any and all Activities and programs including, but not limited to, biking, practice sessions, instructional sessions, competitions, day camps, overnight camps and activities directed by any representative of any Releasee. This Agreement shall be effective and binding upon the Participant’s heirs, next of kin, guardians, relatives, executors, administrators, agents, representatives, and assigns.
