Question about liability in new club
I live in a rural area that has fairly active recreational program and a Recreation and Lifestyle Centre (Gym).
I am considering posting in their bi-annual flyer and as well on the bulletin board at the gym seeking people who may be interested in getting together to form an informal cycling club. No fee, just persons with a love for cycling to get together and ride.
However, I am wondering about the possibility if someone gets hurt. Since I put out the add, am I responsible for everyones safety? Will they send in the bottom feeders (lawyers) to sue me?
I guess it is how I present it. For example, if I ask a bunch of you guys about getting together for a ride the weekend, and one of you crash. Then, no I am not responsible. Unless, of course I somehow was negligant or caused the crash.
BUT if I post an add and make it sound as if I am the ride leader, then maybe...?
Any lawyers out there to give me some advice?
Ps I was only kidding about the bottom feeder thing. :D Some of my best friends are bottom feeders.
