Diamond Peaks Mountain Bike Patrol

Diamond Peaks Mountain Bike Patrol is a service of Overland Mountain Bike Club. Some might even call it the soul of our organization, since DPMBP is where it all started.

Why Become a Patroller?

You love mountain biking and you care about helping other mountain biking enthusiasts to enjoy the trails as much as you do. Certified Mountain Bike Patrollers work to assist others on the trails in medical and or mechanical emergencies. You will have the opportunity to educate trail users of proper etiquette using IMBA's Rules of the Trail, maintain contact with local land agencies regarding trail conditions or incidents, and work side by side, ride by ride, with Outreach members on advocacy and trail work.

Questions or comments, please contact our Patrol Director,

Kenny Bearden at: patrol@overlandmtb.org
