General Assumption of Risk by User
User agrees that riding a Zoom bicycle involves many obvious and not-so-obvious risks, dangers, and hazards, which may result in injury or death to User or others, as well as damage to property, and that such risks, dangers, and hazards cannot always be predicted or avoided. User agrees that such risks, dangers, and hazards are User’s sole responsibility. User agrees that if User’s use of any Service causes injury or damage to another person or property, then User may be liable for all resulting injuries, damages, and related costs. By choosing to ride a Zoom bicycle, User assumes all responsibility for all related risks, dangers, and hazards, and User agrees that Company is not responsible for any injury, damage, or cost caused by User with respect to any person or property, including the Zoom bicycle itself.

Additional User Obligations
User agrees that User is a competent bicycle operator, is sufficiently fit to safely operate a Zoom bicycle, and has taken all precautions necessary to ensure that User is capable of engaging in such physical activity. Like any physical activity, riding a Zoom bicycle may cause minor or major injuries or discomfort and may worsen or complicate underlying medical conditions or diseases. By choosing to ride a Zoom bicycle, User assumes all responsibility for all such injuries or other medical conditions.

User must not use a Zoom bicycle for racing, riding off-road, or any other use, besides safe operation on public or private roads or property and designated bicycle routes.

User must report all accidents and injuries involving a Zoom bicycle to the local authorities and to Zoom and the Company.
User agrees if User is unable to report identifying information due to a medical emergency, Company may, at its discretion, provide personal and contact information to the authorities upon their request.
If the Zoom bicycle is not returned to a Zoom Location at the expiration of the Permitted of Period use, the User will be charged fee of $1,000.00 plus HST, the replacement cost of the Zoom bicycle. If the Zoom bicycle is returned to a Zoom Station and is damaged, or in a state of disrepair arising out of User’s negligence, except normal wear and tear, the User will be charged a fee that is equal to the cost of the repair, to be charged to the User’s credit card.
