Risk Acknowledgement and Acceptance of Self Responsibility
The Elbow Valley Cycle Club offers this trip on the understanding it is a Common Adventure
where each participant conducts him/herself independently, makes his/her own judgements about
safety and well being, takes full responsibility for his/her own actions, and contributes whatever
he/she can towards the success of the trip. The Tour Co-Ordinator is not a leader or professional
guide of any type and acts only to provide basic logistical arrangements for initiating and running
the trip. The route, itinerary and all other aspects of this trip are only suggested and, as
responsible tourists, each participant is expected to research everything prior to the trip to
whatever extent he/she feels is necessary to determine that all is safe and suitable. Each
participant is expected to possess any skills, equipment, fitness, common sense, etiquette,
knowledge of applicable legislations, etc., to enjoyably and safely be involved in th is activity.
Each participant is the sole and final judge about his/her capability to safely proceed with this tour.
All participants recognize financial loss, physical injuries and death to be real possibilities facing
anyone in the sport of bicycling and related activities and agree to assume all risks and
consequences. All participants agree to absolve the Elbow Valley Cycle Club, its organizers,
administrators and agents of any liability arising from Club activities. Any person who does not feel
confident or self reliant about their abilities or who does not agree with this philosophy should not
participate on this tour.
