In signing this document, I fully recognize that if injury, illness, death or damage occurs to me/my child while I am engaged in renting this bicycle, as a result of the Activities or participating in bicycling, I will have no right to make a claim or file a lawsuit against the Releasees, even if they or any of them negligently cause my injury/my child’s injury, illness, death or damage.
CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542 PROVIDES AS FOLLOWS: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
THE UNDERSIGNED, BEING AWARE OF CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY RIGHTS WHICH I/MY CHILD MAY HAVE UNDER THIS LAW, AS WELL AS UNDER ANY OTHER STATUTES OR COMMON LAW PRINCIPLES OF SIMILAR EFFECT.
