I hereby assume all the risks of participating at this facility. I realize that liability may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities being released, from dangerously defective equipment or property owned, maintained or controlled by them, or because of their possible liability without fault. Risks and dangers may be caused by my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in activities or events at the Detroit Fitness Foundation Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome, or the negligence of officers, employees, or agents of Detroit Fitness Foundation and/or Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome; I acknowledge and agree that it is my responsibility to report any unsafe condition of the facility, equipment, and appliances to a responsible party; I acknowledge that this Waiver and Release of Liability pertains and applies to organized event activities or a casual engagement in cycling, athletic, physical fitness, or training activities while I am present at the Detroit Fitness Foundation Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome; I acknowledge that this Accident Waiver and Release of Liability ("AWRL") form will be used by officers, employees, agents, and volunteers of Detroit Fitness Foundation Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome and that it will govern my actions and responsibilities during all activities and events, including casual use of the equipment and facilities. I UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE THAT THERE MAY BE OTHER RISKS AND SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC LOSSES either not known to me or readily foreseeable at this time. I FULLY ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE LOSSES, COSTS, AND DAMAGES I incur as a result of my participation in all activities or events at the Detroit Fitness Foundation Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome. I hereby agree to waive, release and discharge Detroit Fitness Foundation Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome, their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, agents, and participants, from any and all liability for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft, lost income, or any other losses, costs or actions of any kind which hereafter may accrue to me by virtue of my training for, or participation in, activities or events at this facility; I further agree to indemnify or hold harmless the entities or persons mentioned in this document, including but not limited to, their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, agents, property owners, and participants, from any and all liabilities or claims made by other individuals or entities as a result of any of my actions during this event. I hereby consent to receive medical treatment which may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident and/or illness during this event. I understand that at any event or activities, I may be photographed. I agree to allow my photo, video or film likeness to be used for any legitimate purpose by the event holders, producers, sponsors, organizers and/or assigns. The AWRL shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law. I hereby certify that I have read this Agreement, and Waiver and Release of Liability, and fully understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it, and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law and agree that if any portion of this Agreement is held to be invalid the balance, notwithstanding, shall continue in full force and effect. BICYCLE USE: Bicycles may be borrowed for use at this facility. A nominal charge may be collected to cover bicycle maintenance and purchase. This is a loan and does not constitute a rental agreement.

I have examined the bicycle and certify that it is properly assembled and fit to ride. I further agree that I will wear an approved helmet at all times while engaged in activities or events at the Detroit Fitness Foundation Indoor Multi Sport Complex and Lexus Velodrome which involves cycling or the use of bicycles, whether in an organized event or for recreational purposes.
