Chile Pepper Bikes LLC Bike Rental Agreement and Release of Liability
I, the undersigned, and if a minor, my parent/guardian and I (collectively “I” or “my”), in consideration of renting a bike from Chile Pepper Bikes LLC and, if applicable, a helmet (“Rental Equipment”) expressly accept, agree and understand the following:
Release of all Liability (Including Negligence). To the fullest extent allowed by law, I agree to fully release Chile Pepper Bikes LLC, and their respective owners, affiliates, insurance carriers, agents, employees, representatives, assignees, members, partners, officers, directors, shareholders, and the manufacturers and distributors of the Rental Equipment (collectively the “CPB”), from all liability for damages, injuries or claims, including any from the negligence of CPB to myself or any other person or property, that in any way results in whole or in part from rental and use of the Rental Equipment. I agree that this release includes any and all claims alleging any negligence, negligent misrepresentation, premises liability, product liability, design, manufacture, or express or implied warranties, and any other theory of liability.
Acknowledgement of Risks. Bicycling entails known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. The risks include among other things: falling, collision, striking obstructions or other persons, unsafe speed of travel for conditions, head injuries, equipment failure or defect, misuse of equipment, failure to follow instructions or manufacturer’s recommendations, inadequate instructions, overestimation of abilities, weather conditions including temperature exposure (hypothermia, sunstroke, sunburn, heat exhaustion), dehydration, and highway or roadway vehicles.
No Lawsuit/Hold Harmless. To the fullest extent allowed by law, I agree not to sue CPB and I voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless CPB from any and all claims, demands, or cause of action which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity or my use of CPB’s equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions or claimed negligent misrepresentation(s) of CPB. I agree not to file any lawsuit against CPB for any physical, psychological, or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself or to property that may result from my rental or use of a bicycle from CPB or that may result from any advice, guidance or instruction given by CPB regarding trails or the operation of the bicycle, and to indemnify CPB and hold them harmless for any damages, injuries, judgments or lawsuits, resulting in any way from rental and use of the Rental Equipment. I agree that my obligation not to sue, indemnify and hold CPB harmless applies even if CPB is negligent and includes payment of all attorneys’ fees and cost incurred by CPB. I agree that my obligation not to sue and to release, indemnify and hold harmless extends to my family members, heirs, assigns and successors in the event of my death. I agree that if any lawsuit is filed against CPB, it shall be filed in Utah’s Grand County, Seventh District Court and that Utah law shall apply.
Damage or Loss to Rental Equipment. I agree that I am fully responsible for all damage to or loss of any Rental Equipment and agree to pay for all repairs or for the cost of the Rental Equipment if lost or stolen at full retail value. This includes any damage during transport or damage done to any vehicle during transport. I agree that there are no express or implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for purpose provided, and I accept the Rental Equipment “AS IS.” I will fully inspect all Rental Equipment for proper operation.
By signing below, I also agree and acknowledge that: (i) I have test ridden the rental bike(s); (ii) the rental bike(s) is in good mechanical condition and operating properly; (iii) I understand the function of the Rental Equipment; and (iv) all instructions on the use of the Rental Equipment have been made clear to me and I understand the function of the Rental Equipment. Such instructions include, but are not limited to: (i) bike(s) size selection and adjustment; (ii) general Rental Equipment operation; (iii) quick release mechanisms, if applicable; (iv) brakes and gear mechanisms; (v) tire pressure; (vi) shock adjustment; and (vii) helmet(s). If I experience any mechanical problems, then I agree to stop using the equipment immediately and seek repairs.
If a HELMET is being furnished, I understand that no headgear can protect against all foreseeable impacts, that riding a bike can expose the user to forces which exceed the limits of protection offered by this helmet, and that helmets do not guard against injury to the neck, spine, face or any other part of the body, and that these features are inherent risks of using the Rental Equipment. Helmets must be properly fitted to each user, and I agree that this helmet has been properly fitted by the provider. I warrant that the helmet is comfortably snug and that when I fasten the chin strap and shake my head there is no significant movement of the helmet. I agree if the helmet is damaged or involved in an accident, I will stop using it, return it to the shop and report it.
