All riders will be required to sign an event waiver in order to legally participate in the 2014 Alpine Loop Gran Fondo. Waivers will be available at Rider Sign-in and Packet Pickup. You can fill out your waiver in advance by following the instructions at the bottom of this page.

Participants can collect rider #’s and participant bags for other participants only if they bring a waiver that has been signed in advance by the other participant. Those riders who cannot attend Rider Sign-in and Packet Pickup can fill out a waiver in advance by following the instructions at the bottom of this page.

WAIVERS THAT ARE NOT PRINTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING STANDARDS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. (WAIVERS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON SITE.)

BEFORE PRINTING A 2014 EVENT WAIVER, PLEASE NOTE:

For legal purposes, many states require documents of a legal nature to use print in a font of not less than 10 points. These documents have been created with that requirement in mind. However, Adobe Acrobat may scale your document down to it’s own margins, thereby reducing the print to a size that may render the legality of this document void.For your legal protection take a moment as you print this document to ensure that printer scaling is turned off. Follow these steps if you are unsure:

  1. Click the “I Agree” button below.
  2. Once the document opens in Acrobat, press ‘File’ > ‘Print’.
  3. The printer dialog box will appear.
  4. Ensure that the ‘Page Scaling’ option is set to ‘None’.
  5. Ensure that the box for ‘auto-rotate and center pages’ is checked.
  6. Press the ‘Print’ button.

Please note that options on printers may vary by model and by the software that the printer uses.

 

I have read and understand the printing instructions. “I agree” and view waiver.

THE EVENT ORGANIZER WILL NOT PROVIDE TECHNICAL SUPPORT TO ASSIT WITH PRINTING THE EVENT WAIVER IN ADVANCE.

WAIVERS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONSITE.
