10.Your fitness, your responsibility
Our Cycling Holidays assume that you have the desired level of fitness and cycling proficiency that will enable you to participate in and enjoy the tour you have chosen.
You acknowledge that by the very nature of cycling holidays, they are more physically challenging and demanding and you will be subject to a higher risk of injury. You accept that you have booked the holiday after giving due consideration to these risks and you therefore accept the inherent and increased dangers and risks associated with the proposed holiday and the accompanying risk of injury, death or property damage or loss. We will ask you to complete an ‘Acknowledgement of Responsibility and Liability’ form prior to you commencing your Cycling Holiday.
Wearing a bicycle helmet is a must in Spain. Participants are responsible for compliance with the road traffic regulations, even when participating in guided tours. In particular, care must be taken to ensure a safety distance to the other cyclists and other road users and to take account of the road and traffic situation (road condition, traffic density). Olebike shall not be liable for damage to the participants caused by disregarding the dangers of cycling.
11. Exclusion of Liability
We will not be liable to you to the extent that any death or personal injury you may suffer is not due to any fault on our part or that of our servants, agents or suppliers because it is either attributable to you, or attributable to a third party who is unconnected to the Cycling Holiday and is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or because the failure is due to unusual or
unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or due to an event which neither we, nor our servants, agents or suppliers could have foreseen or forestalled.
12. Regular airport shuttle on Saturdays
In the particular case that our driver is not at the meeting point at the specific time, which can be the case due to traffic jam, the traveler should call by phone before leaving the meeting point. If the traveler lost the foreseen shuttle due to a delayed flight or delayed baggage pick-up, the traveler has no claim that the shuttle waits for the customer or reimburses the travel price. The shuttle has a fixed timetable. Together with the customer, we will search for the best alternative by phone.
13. Special services
Special services, which are not foreseen in the program and are booked by the travelers, can be arranged by Olebike. In this case the supplier is liable for the fulfillment of the contracted service.
We recommend you to take out adequate travel (cancellation) insurance that is suitable for your needs prior to your cycling holiday.
It is important that your insurance covers you for cycling activities and any other related activities that you are likely to take part in during your Cycling Holiday. We would strongly advise that your insurance covers the cost of any medical emergencies that may arise and the cost of repatriation.
In the event that one of the aforementioned provisions is
ineffective or becomes ineffective in the future, the remaining provisions shall not be affected.
16. Data Protection
We reserve the right to use photographs, likenesses or images of participants secured or taken on any of our Cycling Holidays without remuneration in all media for bona fide promotional or marketing purposes if the customer has not explicit objected to the use.
