I understand how to operate the equipment’s gears (if any), brakes, and how to adjust the seat, if the equipment has a seat. I understand and agree that if I recognize any safety issues or have any concerns I will immediately stop using any potentially affected equipment and notify Ridepanda immediately.

I EXPRESSLY ASSUME ALL RISK OF LOSS, DAMAGE, OR INJURY OCCURRING AS A RESULT OF OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT.
On behalf of myself, and my heirs, assigns, personal representatives, and successors, I agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless (a) Ridepanda, its owners, employees, officers, directors, managers, agents, and contractors, (b) all Event organizers, sponsors, suppliers, and contractors; and (c) the owners and operators of the facilities at which the Event occurs (together, “Release Parties”) from and against any and all liability, actions, causes of actions, complaints, suits, debts, cost, losses, and damages (including attorneys fees and costs) that may arise from my participation in the Event and the operation of any Event vehicles, regardless of blame and including without limitation negligence by any of the Released Parties or any other person, either solely or jointly with any other person.
