DOD Waiver and Release of Liability

Now that the DOD is an official IMBA chapter, we have certain legal obligations. One of these obligations is to make sure anyone attending a DOD sponsored ride or event signs a waiver and release of liability. We'll have forms to sign at all future events but you can also download the yearly form below, sign it, bring it to the next DOD ride and be covered for all rides for the rest of the year. Thanks for not whining too much about having to do this.

Directions to Whypass

Whypass is a network of singletrack trails built by the DOD near the town of Lorane, OR. The trails are not yet marked and it can be very confusing if you haven't ridden there before. It's recommended that you go with someone who knows the area for your first time out. Note: bringing beer for your guide(s) will (almost) fully guarantee your not getting lost.
