Event Cancellation Policy

Much like dropping in on a steep rocky descent or committing to ride a distance outside of your comfort zone, risk is inherent in our sport.

The act of registering for an Epic Rides event, although not quite as dangerous as riding your bike, presents risks.

Epic Rides takes great pride in the high level of organization and scenic venues our events utilize. In order to assure each event is up to par with Epic Rides expectations it’s critical we make sure nature is cooperating in the effort to avoid unnecessary impacts on both the rider and the trails.

If an act of God or another event beyond our control occurs, what can event participants expect?

  1. Decisions made by Epic Rides will be based on participant safety & environmental impact. Oftentimes these decisions are in the hands of the landowners or agencies through which our events are permitted.
  2.  If an event is required to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, Epic Rides requires each participant to accept the financial responsibility of their entry fee.

The skinny: Epic Rides does not save any money if you do not participate. Epic Rides needs to pay for all the supplies and services associated with the event, regardless of the outcome. These include (but are not limited to) permits, third-party vendors, transport, administrative expenses, and awards

The COVID EXCEPTION.

COVID Cancellation Policy: As COVID’s presence evolves, Epic Rides is making its best efforts to begin producing mountain bike events again safely while avoiding financial insolvency.

Appreciating the amount of upfront costs that are required to be incurred prior to an event weekend, if an event is required to cancel due to COVID, registrants will receive the following:

Transfers or Refunds

As acknowledged by each rider during the registration process, Epic Rides follows a strict non-transferable, non-refundable registration policy.  We do, however, understand “life” happens… The following exceptions will be considered:
  • COVID diagnosis – please provide a doctor’s note or diagnosis
  • Unscheduled military service – please provide a copy of your orders
  • Debilitating injury or illness – please provide a doctor’s note
  • Death of immediate family member – understanding this is a sensitive situation, Epic Rides will work with you; some sort of verification may be requested

Fundraising

The OZ Trails Off-Road raises funds for local and national event beneficiaries including Friends of Arkansas Single Track, Arkansas High School Cycling League and the International Mountain Bike Association.
