In return for being allowed to participate in rides or any other activities sponsored by the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club (PWTC), I, the undersigned, and my executors, successors, and assigns agree that under no circumstance will a claim be made for negligence or gross negligence, for any damages for personal injury, property damage or loss, wrongful death, or any other injury or loss incurred during or arising out of participation in any PWTC ride or activity in which the PWTC is involved, against the PWTC, its members, ride leaders, officers, agents and sponsors. I acknowledge that cycling is an inherently dangerous sport and fully realize the dangers of participating in this event. I acknowledge that this event is extraordinarily challenging and that I am in sound medical condition capable of participating in the ride without risk to myself or others. I further understand and agree that for my personal safety, I am required to and will wear an ASTM, CPSC, or Snell approved bicycle helmet. I will ride safely, legally, and courteously in any PWTC ride. Refusal of any of these requirements gives PWTC the right to ask me to leave the ride. If the named entrant is a minor, then a legal guardian must sign for him/her in the space below. Minors who do not have a signed Release of Claims on file with the PWTC may not participate in PWTC activities.
