Been to the shipyard - the most noticeable thing are the puffy yellow retro bikes. So happy to see them instead of the ubiquitous modern "gator" golf cart type conveyances that are so expensive.

The Boeing factory in Everett, WA, also has a large (indoor) bicycle fleet. I can't find any authoritative numbers but one source says there are 1,300 bikes in use inside the factory. (The building is supposedly the world's largest in terms of cubic feet.) I've seen various articles and documentaries on the Discovery Channel about the factory and the bike fleet.
While Newport News may have a larger system, Boeing likely has the largest indoor bike system, possibly in the entire world. It's interesting, but I like our outdoor CaBi system better.
