Participants further understand that participation in the Program is completely voluntary, and Participants assume the risk of any and all injuries that may occur to Participants or their property as a result of participation in the Program, INCLUDING INJURIES THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE CHAMBER’S OWN NEGLIGENCE.

Equipment

Participants understand and agree that the Chamber is in no way responsible for installing, delivering, repairing, reclaiming, disposing of, maintaining, or replacing any equipment for Participants’ use during the Program. It is Participants’ sole responsibility to maintain, repair, and safely dispose of any and all equipment needed for Participants’ participation in the Program. Additionally, Participants understand and agree that they are responsible for providing insurance for the equipment and any and all costs connected therewith. Participants further agree to fully comply with all safety or other local, state, or federal laws, regulations, and codes in connection with the equipment.

Waiver and Release

Waiver and Release.

Participants understand and agree that this Release discharges the Indemnitees from any liability or claim that Participants may have against the Indemnitees with respect to bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from Participants’ participation in the Program, howsoever arising or caused, including THROUGH THE NEGLIGENCE OF INDEMNITEES. Participants expressly waive any right to a trial by judge or jury that Participants may otherwise have with regard to any claim or liability related to Participants’ participation in the Program.

Medical Treatment

Medical Treatment. Participants consent to receive emergency medical treatment in the event of illness or injury and release and forever discharge the Indemnitees from any liability or claim whatsoever which arises or may later arise on account of any medical services rendered in connection with an emergency during Participants’ participation in the Program.

The Possum Pedal takes you back in time when life was a little slower and everyone greeted you with a smile. This year has routes of 6, 27, 42, 54.5, and 61, traveling Southwestern Young County, including Graham, South Bend, Eliasville and this year, back to Fort Belknap. The terrain is rolling hills, smooth roads, and some of the most beautiful scenery in Texas. It is a great warm-up ride for The Hotter N Hell or a great way to just come out and enjoy a day away from the big city crowd.
The Possum Pedal Bike Ride begins at 7:00 a.m. in the historic Downtown Square. Rest stops are plentiful and ride support is strong.
Don't just eat - SHOP!!!
