  • MPD Bike Officer Physical

    I was just notified that I am scheduled for a bike officer physical at the DC Police and Fire Clinic. Does anyone know what this physical consists of?

    Since I am already an IPMBA (International Police Mountain Bike Association) Certified Police Cyclist, I do not understand why they are making me take a physical, since they are not making me take the MPD Bike Training class, but rather just issuing me bike gear and a bike.

    BTW, I am DC Protective Services Police ... yes, they are sending us to the clinic these days too.

    normal phys. Just want to make sure you wont die durring training.
    Some say to take action and to fail is to die a dogs death. I say to live, and fail to take action is to live a dogs life.

      Thats what I figured, which is weird since myself and a few others who have the notices to respond to the clinic already have IPMBA Certification and don't have to complete the training.

      Thanks for the info.

        Its the most pointless physical you will have to go through, I dont even understand why I had to do it before I went through the mountain bike course. The guy was basically like "hey, you look in shape, everything looks good" I was like, WTF.

          That's pretty funny. I can't see why your biannual physical isn't enough to satisfy the requirements. When I took the bike class, we did not ave a physical, they just asked us a no BS, can you bike for at least 15 miles w/o stopping and i think we signed a pt waiver. I guess they figure if you can pass the PEB every 6 months you are in shape enough for a bike.
