Velo Performance Cycling Holidays
Terms and Conditions
By agreeing to participate with Velo Performance you accept the following:
I acknowledge that I will be participating in an organised cycling holiday or cycle training camp with Velo Performance which will involve strenuous physical activity.
I confirm that I am sufficiently fit for, and am not suffering from any health problems which will be exacerbated by such activity.
In the case of a booking being made by an individual person on behalf of another person or group of persons, then the person who is making the booking must have the authority of all the other people to accept these terms and conditions on the group’s behalf.
I recognise that cycling on public roads, particularly in mountainous areas, is an activity with a danger of personal injury and even death. I confirm that I am aware of and accept such risk and will be responsible for my own actions and involvement in this activity.
I also acknowledge that I have been advised by Velo Performance to take out insurance against the costs of medical treatment, evacuation, loss of earnings and/or cost of care in the event that I suffer injury or illness during the holiday/training camp and while traveling; against loss of or damage to my property (including my bicycle); against liability I might incur to third parties; and against costs I might incur in the event of cancellation or curtailment of the holiday/training camp or my participation in it.
I confirm that I will arrange adequate insurance against such risks.
Velo Performance can accept no responsibility for any costs that may be incurred due to insufficient insurance cover.
Circumstances may require some changes to be made at any time to the particulars of any holiday/training camp (eg. itineraries, overnight locations, meals or routes). Any such changes will be communicated to you as soon as possible and will be held to be of a minor nature. We will not materially change the value of the holiday/training camp, and the original theme will be retained.
Photographs, likenesses or images of participants secured or taken on any of our holidays/training camps may be used by the company without remuneration in all media for bona fide promotional or marketing purposes.

I agree that no liability whatsoever shall attach to the promoter, promoting club/organisation, event sponsor or any event official or member or member of the promoting club/organisation in respect of any injury, loss or damage suffered by me in or by reason of the event, unless such injury, loss or damage is proven to be caused by the negligence of the aforementioned.
