1) Only these terms and conditions and terms which cannot be excluded by law bind Corporate Health Events Management Pty Ltd ABN 92 139 911 916 (“CHEM”). All other conditions, warranties and representations are excluded. These terms and conditions can only be varied by CHEM’s written agreement.

2) I will comply with these terms and conditions and any reasonable direction issued by CHEM or its representatives.

3) I agree to participate in this event on the following basis:

  • I acknowledge that cycling involves the real risk of serious injury or even death from various causes including overexertion, equipment failure, dehydration, accidents with other participants, support vehicles or road users, and course or weather conditions to name a few.
  • I understand that I should not participate in this event unless I have trained appropriately and a medical practitioner has verified my physical condition.
  • By participating, I accept all risks necessarily flowing from my participation that could result in loss of life or permanent injury. Accordingly, I release all people associated with the conduct of the event from, and will indemnify them against, all liability (including liability for their negligence) for all injury, loss or damage (including loss of life and personal injury) arising out of or connected with my participation in this event. For clarification, the people released include event organisers, promoters, sponsors, managers including their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and volunteers including event medical and paramedical personnel.
