There are tangible rewards for being part of the Bike Patrol team.  Patrollers may earn their kit – special socks, bag, and a jersey – by consistent participation as Bike Patrol.  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).
