Great Cycle Challenge involves setting a personal ride distance target to achieve over the course of the month. The Rider should seek professional advice from a medical practitioner before setting their personal goal.

Health & Safety

The Rider is responsible for ensuring that they have adequately and appropriately prepared both physically and mentally for the Event and  by entering the Event, the Rider warrants that they have done so and are not aware of any illness, injury, physical disability or impairment which may cause them injury or death during the Event. If the Rider has any health issues or doubts prior to or during the Event, the Rider warrants that they will immediately seek appropriate medical advice.

If, during the Event, the Rider becomes ill or is injured, the Rider warrants that they will cease participation in the Event until they have sought the advice of a medical professional.

Compliance with State/Territory Laws

During the Event, the Rider will comply with all traffic and road laws in the jurisdiction that they are participating in and any directions issued by officers of the law in their state/territory.

The Rider will wear an Australian standard cycling helmet at all times during the Event while riding a bicycle.

Waiver and Acknowledgment

The Rider acknowledges and agrees that cycling is inherently dangerous and that they participate in the Great Cycle Challenge at their own risk. The risks associated with participating in Great Cycle Challenge include but are not limited to the risk that:

(a)         the Rider may be involved in a collision with people, animals, vehicles and/or other objects;
(b)        the Rider may suffer harm from physical exertion;
(c)    the Rider’s bicycle may malfunction and the Rider may fall;
(d)    the Rider may otherwise fall from their bicycle; or
(e)    the Rider may suffer from the effects of heat, cold, wind, rain and other weather conditions.

Each of these risks may result in the Rider suffering harm including but not limited to death, physical or mental injury, disability, property damage and economic loss. There may be  other risks to which the Rider may be exposed, including injury caused to other parties or damage caused to the property of other parties. It is the Rider’s responsibility to ensure that they abide by all road and safety rules, including wearing appropriate clothing and safety equipment, such as helmets, brightly coloured vests and lighting,  as may be required by  the state and territory laws in the jurisdiction in which they are riding.

Release, Indemnity and Liability ExclusionsThe Rider releases Children’s Medical Research Institute from all claims (including those arising out of negligence), loss, damage, liability, cost and expense arising out of the Rider’s participation in the Event and the Rider indemnifies Children’s Medical Research Institute against any claim (including but not limited to those arising in negligence), loss, damage, liability, cost and expense that may be incurred or sustained by Children’s Medical Research Institute in connection with any act, matter or thing done, permitted or omitted to be done by the Rider or which was in any way connected with the Rider’s involvement in the Great Cycle Challenge.

Nothing in these terms and conditions excludes, restricts or modifies any term, condition, warranty, guarantee, right or remedy (including but not limited to a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”)) which cannot lawfully be excluded, restricted or modified.

The ACL contains guarantees that give consumers certain rights in relation to goods and services they acquire. These guarantees cannot be excluded, restricted or modified except in certain circumstances. Section 139A of the Competition and Consumer Act (2010) (Cth) (“CCA”) permits a term of a contact for the supply to a consumer of recreational services, to exclude liability of the supplier for death and personal injury arising from the failure to comply with a guarantee provided in sections 60 to 62 of the ACL. To the extent permitted by s139A of the CCA, the Rider acknowledges and agrees that Children’s Medical Research Institute excludes all liability in connection with the supply of recreational services for:

(a)    death;
(b)    physical or mental injury;
(c)    the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of a physical or mental injury;
(d)   the contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease; and
(e)    the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to an individual, that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to the individual or community, or that may result in harm or disadvantage to the individual or community, resulting from a failure of Children’s Medical Research Institute to comply with a guarantee in sections 60-62 of the ACL.

This exclusion of liability does not apply where significant personal injury is caused by the reckless conduct of Children’s Medical Research Institute in accordance with s139A of the ACL.

The Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) (“CLA”) permits a term of a contact for the supply of recreation services to exclude liability of the supplier for damages for harm resulting from a breach of an express or implied warranty that the services will be rendered with reasonable care and skill. To the extent permitted by law, the Rider acknowledges and agrees that Children’s Medical Research Institute excludes all liability for damages for any harm (including but not limited to personal injury or death, damage to property and economic loss and whether direct, indirect, special or consequential) from a failure to exercise reasonable care and skill, regardless of whether the claim is brought in tort (including in negligence), in contract, under statute or otherwise, where such liability results from breach of an express or implied warranty that the services will be rendered with reasonable care and skill.

Except as expressly included in these terms and conditions, all implied terms, conditions, warranties, rights or other additional obligations that can be lawfully excluded are excluded from these terms and conditions.

Content and data

The Rider agrees that while Children’s Medical Research Institute will provide access to a mobile application to record ride distances in good faith, it cannot be held responsible for the loss of data which may eventuate from the application itself or in transmission between the application and the Event’s website.

Children’s Medical Research Institute does not claim ownership of Content the Rider may submit or make available for inclusion on www.GreatCycleChallenge.com.au.
