By agreeing to participate in this ride, I ALSO voluntarily accept the risk that the organizers may be NEGLIGENT in their performance of their duties associated with putting on a bicycle race. This negligence is beyond the inherent risks of Anchorage bicycle riding or group rides. This risk is the reality that the organizers do not claim to be perfect nor able to anticipate all dangers or risks that may befall participants.
