National Mountain Bike patrol

IMBA’s National Mountain Bike Patrol (NMBP) program organizes and supports volunteer bike patrols throughout the United States and around the world. Patrollers provide assistance to hikers, equestrians, and especially mountain bikers. They give information, provide directions, help with minor repairs, and provide first aid.

The fundamental goal of mountain bike patrols is to ensure trail access for mountain bikers. Mountain bike patrols work in cooperation with land managers to meet the specific needs of their local riding area.
