Using a ~ in a relative path only works for server side controls.
Use a relative path without using ~ if possible or use an absolute path.
If the content page is in the root of your website you would use :

<div style ="background-image: url('/media/images/OFFROADBACKGROUND.png');" > 

alternatively you could turn your div into a servercontrol :

<div style ="background-image: url('~/media/images/OFFROADBACKGROUND.png');" runat="server">
