Who Is IMBA National Mountain Bike Patrol?
The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) NMBP exists as a non‐profit entity to maintain and develop mountain biking trail access, support relationships with land managers, and promote responsible mountain biking and outdoor recreation in Michigan.
What is the National Mountain Bike Patrol?
A chapter of the National Mountain Bike Patrol is a volunteer mountain bike organization dedicated to promoting responsible riding and trail use on our public lands, providing assistance and education to trail users, and participating in this mission by riding our bikes. Our patrollers ride designated Township, City, County, State and U.S. Forest Service trails and provide simple, helpful assistance (such as giving directions to trail users, helping with minor mountain bike repairs, and educating riders about the rules of the trail). Patrollers report patrol activity via an easy web form after completing their rides.
The mission of the Mountain Bike Patrol boils down to:
- Assist in medical and mechanical emergencies
- Educate trail users of proper etiquette
- Inform land managers, land owners and trail users of trail conditions through monitoring efforts
- Work with land managers to maintain and/or gain trail access for mountain bikers
- Offer volunteer services at outdoor races and events
