The Mission of Perimeter Bicycling’s Bike Patrol… More
The mission of Perimeter Bicycling’s Bike Patrol program is to provide assistance, encouragement, and support for the participants of Perimeter events. Patrollers offer mechanical assistance, first aid as needed and encouragement to successfully finish the ride.
Perimeter Bike Patrol is a group of nearly 300 certified cyclists who bring enthusiasm for cycling and a deep pool of experience to ensure the success of thousands of riders in Perimeter events every year.
There is also an award for outstanding Bike Patrol in each event.
And of course, all Bike Patrol receive a finisher’s medallion.

News and Events for Bike Patrol
WE HAVE NEW JERSEYS WITH A BRAND NEW AWESOME DESIGN!
We are able to offer the Bike Patrol jersey for sale to qualified patrollers. “Qualified” patroller means you have done a minimum of 4 patrols. The jerseys are made by Pactimo and are Century (club) cut, which is more relaxed. They are available on the on-line El Tour store page in a special code – accessed area for $55. Once you have completed 4 patrols contact the Bike Patrol Director for the code to access the store to buy your jersey. That means you can order your jersey, plus you can get a jacket or vest if you want one. (We won’t be offering shorts or gloves, so you’re on your own there).
