Welcome to Bike School.  Some of you know us as Police Mountain Bike School at Ithaca College - Located in Ithaca, New York.  Ithaca is the birth place of New York State’s Basic Law Enforcement Bicycle Patrol Course. 



Ithaca College’s Office of Public Safety has hosted this state qualification training since 1994. Master Patrol Officer Erik S. Merlin has carried on this tradition from his predecessors, since 2003 when the training was in jeopardy of not being offer at the college.  Erik Merlin has rebuilt the program and renewed the quality of training that Ithaca is known for. By doing this Erik Merlin has created Trident Mountain Bike to expand the programs capabilities to offer all three main disciplines represented by these organizations:


New York State – Department of Criminal Justice,
Law Enforcement Bicycle Association (LEBA), and
International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA). 


We now offer courses locally in Cortland, NY as well as offer contracted services for agencies to host the training at their location, all of which are open to anyone in the Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services, and Security field.  

Check out our current course Schedule or Contact Us today for further details.
