Volunteer Mountain Bike Patrol

The volunteer bike patrol program is intended to encourage more community involvement in Lakewood’s open space parks. The volunteers are a uniformed extension of the park rangers and provide a patrol presence at William Frederick Hayden Park, Bear Creek Lake Park and the Bear Creek Greenbelt. Patrollers provide the following:

  • Extra “eyes and ears” for park staff on trails
  • Education to users violating park rules, particularly multi-use issues and leash law violations
  • Education to users about park facilities, trails and resources
  • User assistance, including first aid and minor bike repairs

Bike Patrollers

Bike patrollers are recruited and trained in the spring as needed.  The basic requirements are:

  • Complete a volunteer application, criminal background check and an interview with park staff
  • Be at least 18 years old and provide your own mountain bike, helmet and cell phone
  • Complete required training, including first aid and CPR
  • Commit to a minimum of two patrols per month from April-September
  • Be a positive and accurate representative of the City and the Regional Parks division
  • Document patrol activities and turn in records as required 

The City will provide a uniform jersey, “number plate,” training and other patrol supplies.
