Participant Release and Waiver
IN CONSIDERATION of being given the opportunity to participate in The Domestique Rides (the “Activity”), I agree to
1. I KNOW THIS IS DANGEROUS. I fully understand that: (a) CYCLING IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS AND INVOLVES
RISKS AND DANGERS OF SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, INCLUDING PERMANENT DISABILITY, PARALYSIS AND
DEATH ("Risks"); (b) Risks may include, but are not limited to collision with pedestrians, vehicles, other riders, or fixed or
moving objects, and dangers arising from surface hazards, equipment failure, weather, inadequate safety equipment,
use of equipment or materials provided by the Releasees or others; (c) these Risks may be caused by my own actions, or
inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in the Activity, the area and conditions in which the Activity takes
place, or my negligence or the negligence of the Releases names below; and (d) there may be other Risks not known to
me or not readily foreseeable at this time. I FULLY ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, KNOWN AND
UNKNOWN, AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSSES, COSTS, AND DAMAGES I INCUR AS A RESULT OF MY
PARTICIPATION IN THE ACTIVITY.
2. I’LL LOOK AROUND AND USE GOOD JUDGMENT. I will examine and inspect the Activity in which I participate. If I
observe any condition, which I consider to be unacceptably hazardous or dangerous, I will notify the proper authority in
charge of the Activity and will refuse to take part in the Activity until the condition has been corrected to my satisfaction.
3. I WON’T SUE. I RELEASE, DISCHARGE, AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE THE DOMESTIQUE LLC., THEIR
ADMINISTRATORS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, OFFICERS, VOLUNTEERS AND EMPLOYEES, OTHER PARTICIPATING
EVENT ORGANIZERS, ANY SPONSORS, ADVERTISERS, AND IF APPLICABLE, OWNERS AND LESSORS OF
PREMISES, ON WHICH THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE, (each, including The Domestique, the “Releasees”) from all
liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on my account, now or hereafter accrued, which are caused or allege to be
caused in whole or in part by my participation in, association with or travel to and from the Activity, including my
negligence, the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, or negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if,
despite of this Release, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I WILL INDEMNIFY,
SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS EACH OF THE RELEASEES, from any litigation’s expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability,
damage, or cost which any may incur as a result of such claim.
4. I’M READY FOR IT; YOU CAN SHARE MY INFORMATION. I understand that participation in the Activity may be
extremely demanding both mentally and physically. I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical and mental
condition to participate in the Activity. I consent to the release by any third party to the Releasees and their insurance
carriers of my name and medical information that may relate solely to an injury I may suffer arising from the Activity.
5. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH MY IMAGE. As participant in the Activity and in any facets as to which
my participation may be included, I hereby grant The Domestique LLC., the irrevocable and unrestricted right and
permission to copyright, in name or otherwise, and use, re-use, publish, and re-publish of me or in which I may be
included, in whole or in part, or composite or distorted in character or form, without restriction as to changes or
alterations, in conjunction with my own or a fictitious name, or reproductions thereof in color or otherwise, made through
any medium, and in any and all media now or hereafter known for illustration, promotion, art, editorial, advertising,
trade, or any other purpose whatsoever. I also consent to the use of any printed matter in conjunction with any of the

representatives, successors-in-interest, and assigns.
