Elmhurst Bicycle Club Release and Liability Waiver

For liability protection and insurance purposes, it is the policy of the Elmhurst Bicycle Club ("EBC") to require all of its members to sign the Release and Liability Waiver which is a part of the EBC Membership Application. Guests of the EBC (which term includes all non-members of EBC) who wish to participate in any EBC bicycle ride must sign the equivalent release and liability waiver contained on the EBC Ride Sheet before the ride starts. Any guest refusing to sign the release and liability waiver may not participate in the ride. Should the ride continue, however, with the participation of the non-signing guest, the ride will no longer be considered to be an EBC sponsored or sanctioned ride.
