As of 2019 IMBA has changed their support of the National Mountain Bike Patrol. It is now a part of the National Ski Patrol. In February of 2020, the Lawrence Mountain Bike Patrol joined as the eastern most team of the Rocky Mountain Division of the National Ski Patrol.
First organized in 2000, the Lawrence Mountain Bike Patrol is a community service extension of the Lawrence Mountain Bike Club. The distinctive red jerseys emblazoned with a large white cross identify the patrollers.
The mountain bike patrollers are ambassadors, not enforcers. The patrollers are charged with providing help and first-aid for injured trail users, assistance with bike repairs, and information about bike and trail safety. The mountain bike patrol is authorized by the City of Lawrence Parks and Rec. Department, and each patroller is trained in C.P.R. and emergency first aid.
