What We Do

The Bike Scouts Project is divided into four main components: Pathfinder Teams that are tasked with disaster response deployments, Central Dispatch that manages all teams and resources, Community Volunteer Teams that comprise the local community support teams of the Bike Scouts, and Bike Scouts Hero School membership that is open to the general public that would like to support and learn how to serve as Bike Scouts in their own community.

The Bike Scouts Pathfinder Teams are highly-skilled members of the Bike Scouts that have extensive experience in professional adventure and wilderness work, wilderness search and rescue, and with a competitive background in various events ranging from adventure racing to cross-country mountain bike events and 24-hour endurance racing. The team also undertakes regular training for inter-operability with governmental and non-governmental organizations, including the armed forces. Due to the technical nature of disaster and emergency response work, the Pathfinder Teams are only open for membership for Bike Scouts members with the requisite training, experience, mind set, and availability for training and deployment requirements. Membership to the Pathfinder Teams is by invitation only, candidates are subject to review and testing. Learn More

OUR COMMUNITY


 

The Bike Scouts Community Volunteer Teams form the backbone of the Bike Scouts’ Volunteer Community Network throughout the country, and beyond. VIA stands for “Volunteers In Action,” and these are the Volunteer Teams that respond to various calls for action,volunteers, and support in their own communities. The different local teams on the Bike Scouts Volunteer Network collaborate with each other in time of emergencies, natural disasters, or whenever there is a need to accomplish a task that requires the effort of more than just a single Bike Scout team. The goal for the network is to establish enough number of teams that it covers the country, and in doing so become able to connect one place to another by bicycle messenger, or radio communications, in the event of severe natural disasters where road access and traditional communications infrastructure become unavailable. Each local team in the Bike Scouts network receive basic training about the Bike Scouts organization and community, its members also get training in bicycle handling, maintenance, basic life saving skills, radio communications, and drone operations, among other things that allow them to operate independently.
