Bike Patrol


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.
