Important Details about the 9th Annual Giant Loop Ride:
* We respectfully request full cooperation from all riders and guest with respect to social distancing, mask wearing and other COVID-19 precautions and guidelines. If this is problem for you, please request a refund now.
* All riders are expected to be self-sufficient and equipped with all tools and supplies needed to be safe and comfortable.
* This is not a paid guided trip. Riders are free to choose any route they wish to ride, and riders are responsible for all required permits, licenses, etc.
* Route suggestions and GPS tracks are provided free of charge for your convenience.
* This is some of the most rugged and remote country in the lower 48 states. We recommend using a SPOT, inReach or similar device for self-rescue. Cell phone coverage is unreliable in rural Oregon. There are no support vehicles, and many available routes are far from medical and mechanical help. Consider signing up for and emergency service provider, such as Air Link or Life Flight. Here’s a good PDF article discussing the details and relative merits of these service providers.
* Unpaid volunteers will be available to facilitate forming groups of riders with similar skills, bike types and interests, but riders are responsible for themselves, are free to choose any route they wish to ride and are free to ride with any other riders – or by themselves as individuals.
