Every aspect of our operation is designed to put safety first but not all risks can be eliminated. Our aim is to manage risk to acceptable levels. Pedalmore, or the operator on the day has responsibility for all safety decisions. Your safety and enjoyment is our first priority.

Assumption of risk and release of liability

  2. I knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of Pedalmore, or others, and assume all responsibility for my participation; and,
  3. I understand the dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol or any mind altering drugs, before and/or during the activity and I take full responsibility for any injury, loss or damage associated with their consumption; and,
  4. I also agree to abide by and comply and rules, instructions or directions properly given to me by any staff member, and understand that such non-compliance may result in injury, illness, death and/or permanent disability or removal from the activity at my own expense and I agree to indemnify Pedalmore against all claims made by any person as a result of my failure to comply; and,
  5. I am mentally, physically and in all other respects fit and fully able to use the hydrobikes and have no special medical requirements or conditions except as described in the ‘medical questionnaire’ to participate in the activity.
