Meet at 10:00 am for a 10:15 am start
GPC Route: Delta Birding
Start Location: Isleton Main Street

Please preregister. There is a public parking lot at the ride start in Isleton with a public restroom nearby. Lunch is on the deck at the Cosumnes River Preserve visitor center. Bring lunch or buy at the Subway located just after crossing under Interstate 5 at Thornton Rd near the Chevron station. Historic Locke and Mel's Mocha & Ice Cream at Walnut Grove are worthwhile side adventures, but the main seasonal attraction is the birds: Sand Hill Cranes, and large numbers of geese and other waterbirds--bring binoculars for best viewing. Major birding sites include Staten Island Rd, the marsh across from the Cosumnes Visitor Center, and Desmond/Bruceville Roads.

Riders who want to spend more time birding, Meet Pat near the beginning of Staten Island road at 10 for the 25 mile ride. There there is a parking lot and seasonal portapotty at this site. If you want to start at Staten Island, please register for the ride, and e-mail Pat to coordinate. Cell phone service may be sketchy out there for some of us.

WEATHER: WATCH FOR UPDATES. Right now the weather forecast looks favorable, but NOAA forecasts a system coming in Wed evening. The other variable to watch is the fog forecast with some forecasting morning fog. Expect a cooler start than for bay area rides with temps rising to ~60 in current forecast. Dress in warmer layers than the temp indicates to be comfortable standing around looking at birds.

Release of Liability

Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk Agreement, Parental Consent Agreement with Indemnity, and Other Agreements

This is a Release. When you agree to it, you forever give up certain rights to sue the persons and entities referred to in this Release. READ IT CAREFULLY.

"Grizzly Peak Cyclists", "GPC" and "the club" refer to Grizzly Peak Cyclists, Inc., a California Nonprofit Mutual Benefit Corporation, or its successor organization in the event that it should reorganize, merge, or change its name.

In return for being allowed to participate in any activity by Grizzly Peak Cyclists, Inc.:

  1. I acknowledge that I and other participants may be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury to me, including viral and bacterial infections, other communicable illnesses, permanent disability, and death. I understand that these risks may be increased through my own actions, or through the negligent action or inaction of Grizzly Peak Cyclists members or representatives. I therefore assume all risks of injury or loss, even if caused in whole or in part by the negligence of Grizzly Peak Cyclists, its members, or other representatives.
  2. I release from liability Grizzly Peak Cyclists, their officers, members, sponsors, and employees; and owners and lessors of facilities used by Grizzly Peak Cyclists, for any injury or damage that I may incur as a result of their activities, even if caused in whole or in part by their negligence.
  3. California Civil Code section 1542 states: 'A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.' I specifically waive the terms of that section, and agree to release claims that I may not yet know of, or which may be based on events that have not yet occurred.
  4. If I am allowing children under the age of 18 to participate in any activity, I agree on their behalf to the terms of this Release. I agree that if, notwithstanding this Release, I, the minor, or anyone on the minor's behalf makes a claim against any of the persons or entities Released, I will indemnify those persons and entities and hold them harmless against all expenses, damage or costs, including attorneys fees, arising out of that claim.
  5. I recognize that GPC is built on the efforts of its volunteers. If, in the course of performing volunteer service for Grizzly Peak Cyclists, I provide or develop any software, procedures, data, maps, cue-sheets, artwork, or other material in which I have any ownership or copyright rights, I grant to the club license to copy, modify, retain and use such material in perpetuity for its purposes without compensation either implicitly by this agreement or by any compatible explicit license.
