Frequently Asked Questions

Is my registration fee tax deductible?

The Lightsview Ride Like Crazy 2017 registration fee is not tax deductible. Under the Australian Taxation Office rules the registration fee is deemed a contribution, as each participant receives a benefit for the fee eg: jersey, refreshments.

Why do I have to complete a Form 1 Liability Waiver?

Legislation that came into effect in 2011 requires participants to sign a Form 1 Liability Waiver. Under Section 42 of the Fair Trading Act 1987, the supplier of recreational services is entitled to ask you to agree to exclude, restrict or modify his or her liability for any personal injury suffered by you or another person for whom or on whose behalf you are acquiring the services (a third party consumer). If you sign this form, you will be agreeing to exclude, restrict or modify the supplier's liability with the result that compensation may not be payable if you or the third party consumer suffer personal injury.

It is a condition of Lightsview Ride Like Crazy that all adult participants (18+ years on the day of the ride) sign this form.

Note: Children (under 18 years on the day of the ride) DO NOT sign the Form 1 Liability Waiver.

Riders are required to read, sign, date and have the form witnessed. The Form 1 Liability Waiver will be required to be handed to a Lightsview Ride Like Crazy volunteer at the start of the ride. This will complete the registration process and riders will then be provided with their wristband.

The Form 1 Liability Waiver can be downloaded from the Lightsview Ride Like Crazy website.

What if I don't complete the Form 1 Liability Waiver?

If you do not complete the Form 1 Liability Waiver, for whatever reason, you will not have complied with the Terms and Conditions of Lightsview Ride Like Crazy and you will not be provided with a wristband. Under these circumstances, you will not be considered as having completed the registration process.
