The Mission of Perimeter Bicycling’s Bike Patrol… More
Perimeter Bicycling’s Bike Patrol program is to provide assistance, encouragement, and support for the participants of Perimeter events. Patrollers offer mechanical assistance and first aid as needed and encouragement to successfully finish the ride.
Nearly 300 certified Bike Patrol cyclists bring enthusiasm for cycling and a deep pool of experience to ensure the success of thousands of riders in Perimeter’s 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.

Popular question: Why do Bike Patrol need to pay an entry fee?
Perimeter Bicycling is a nonprofit organization – all funds received are used for event expenses and donations to the primary beneficiary. Expenses paid by the event include but are not limited to t-shirts, rider numbers, police support (they are not on city/county payroll), barricades, permits, etc. We do our best to keep the costs down.
