    On our visit to the yard, we saw some bikes and bike racks. Are midshipman allowed to have bikes? If so what are general requirements? I can pretty much figure they are right out for plebes! Thanks.

    I know the club sports teams for Cycling and Triathlon can keep bikes on the Yard, and many staff and faculty ride to work. After that, I am not current on general bike policy for mids. I admit to not feeling the urge to dig into current Mid Regs so will lazily await a poster with first-hand current info.

    No problem, I don't mind "lazily awaiting" and I love the term! I may have to borrow it for future correspondence!

    Though not stated - I think it is fair to say - Don't bring your bicycle to Plebe Summer

    Otherwise: (and I think the cycling, triathlon, and endurance teams all have their own designated area)

    8.8 BICYCLE STORAGE ROOMS

    1. Midshipmen will keep all bicycles in designated bicycle storage rooms. Authorized storage rooms 1

    include: 8° Wing Mezzanine Brigade Bike Room (8M32C), Battalion Bike Rooms (3019, 5040, 7004, 4015, 6040, 8003), and Company Bike Rooms (2014, 4037, 4040, 4046, 54121).

    2. Midshipmen are not authorized to store bicycles in any space not designated as a bicycle storage room.
